I sure wouldn't mind myself. *smile* I prefer KDE but, given the choice,
default desktop environment is irrelevant. In SuSE 10, the user is prompted
to choose his/her default desktop environment at installation time. There is
still choice thereafter. It's a new feature as KDE used to be set by default
(see screenshot tours in OSDir). For business customer, GNOME is now set to
be SLES' default, assuming I recall this correctly.
KDE is powerful, but it proves more daunting and difficult-to-master to new
users. Canonical (Ubuntu) understand that, but they still offer the choice,
but not in the login manager. Too many choice forks would confuse the user.
