tmux status line

The default tmux pane title in fedora is something like this:

username@hostname:/directory

When you have a number of pane open, it becomes painful - In debian, tmux does not behave that way. The pane title is simply:

pane-number:shell-name

So, it comes to something like this:

[0] 0: bash 1: bash* 2:bash

Is there a way to ensure tmux defaults to that behavior?

I have mucked around tmux.conf but no luck. Using powerline seems a bit too much at this stage - all I want is to make my pane title simple.

Fedora is supposed to be more bare-bones, let the user configure. Why would tmux come with all the bells and whistles all set out of box? Any ideas how to do this?
