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

Even though I'm a KISS believer, IMO it is a disservice to first exposure users that diminishes the apparent power of openSUSE to limit this selection list to only the two most demanding desktop environments. If XFCE, Mate, Cinnamon and/or others available as patterns cannot be included in this list as selections, then it would be good to put several in parentheses with ", etc." beside "Other" so that it's clear "Other" is not an option to be casually dismissed.
