I don't mind it if the wording is changed slightly

* Desktop (Gnome)
* Desktop (KDE)
* Server (Text Mode)
* Other

I would personally avoid using parenthesis;

* KDE Desktop
* GNOME Desktop
* Server (Text mode)
* Other

I also do not like parenthesis, but I think it make sense to have
emphasis on Desktop so have it as first word.
So in the end I change it as

* Workstation with Gnome
* Workstation with KDE Plasma
* Server (Text Mode)
* Other

so it is clear what is Server and what is workstation. ( I do not
use desktop as it can be also notebook, and desktop looks like a bit
opposite of notebook ).

and maybe even add
if unsure, use this option
behind one entry - just to make life for noobs easier


I hope that keeping one option as default already give to people that
hint. I worry if we add recommended to GNOME or KDE, people from
another DE start shouting.

Indeed, that may happen. So forget it :-)
