Why stop there. There are others, like Windowmaker and IceWM.

Unfortunatly what I see is that many things are done either the KDE way,
the GNOME way or no way at all. But I am not even going to push this, or
try to go to the right place.

The majority of all computer users just does not care, which desktop is
running. They want to start Firefox, Emacs, OpenOffice--and do their
work. And hear musik or organize photos, etc.

Those who want to run a dedicated windowmanager such as WW or IceWM
will probably know, how to customize the menu system according to
their need or to set a lovely background image.

There is simply no need to offer a special WW or IcsWM desktop, as long
as two other desktops are available.
