One of the main goals for this proposal is too make it easier and
clearer to install Mate, Cinnamon, LXQt and others but at the same
time not give new users a choice of 8+ desktops which would be
confusing, choosing between 2 is hard enough.

But having to activate other desktops via patterns is worse, I think.
It makes things harder. Not everybody wanting to install one of those
is an expert, may be newcomers to openSUSE.

Do you really think that checking one pattern is so hard for average
experienced user? I worry we do not have any good candidates for UX
testing in company.

For total beginners I think KDE or gnome is good
enough options and when they know about others desktop, I believe they
can select pattern easily.

You can make a clickable list and differentiate first/second level
choices, perhaps.

It was there before and it was hard to maintain. On other hand patterns
already exists and should contain all needed stuff. It is maintained by
someone who knows given desktop and not by yast team and it can be also
easily extended with new ones for another desktops.
