How is a non-Linux user supposed to choose? We've optimised the Linux 
install procedure to the point where there's very little unusual 
terminology used, but "Gnome" and "KDE" really aren't something that a 
user can make an informed choice about. The OpenSuse install screen 
gives you no information that helps you decide which you want, and the 
only thing I can think of that would actually help would be something 
like:

"Gnome: Your Fedora install will look like Ubuntu, but blue. Choose this 
option if you want to run the desktop that has more Fedora developers 
working on it"

"KDE: Your Fedora install will look different to Ubuntu, but will 
otherwise work pretty much as well except for when things aren't as well 
integrated"

Which still isn't a great deal of help.
