This would just be one single choice, and a choice a sizable portion of our
userbase wants to make (even those who happen to use Fedora's current
defaults: ask them around how they'd react if Fedora would install KDE by
default and making it a complex hunt of checkboxes to select GNOME instead,
also by making all the use-case-specific groups default to KDE apps and
having the GNOME equivalents part of the GNOME group instead; yet that's
exactly what's done right now, except with GNOME<->KDE switched around).
The current solution is highly inconvenient. I can only really recommend
the KDE live spin for KDE users. Sadly, that one is hidden behind a small
link on the default download page, with the default download not even
containing KDE at all.
