It's hard from a screenshot or two for the user to truly know what
they're getting into with either desktop. You could make a "hey, this
looks nifty/niftier" decision, but a screenshot doesn't really tell
you a whole lot.

hear, hear!

if a user can't be expected to make a choice (even to DL & try-out a
LiveCD, as zonker suggested ...), about a desktop env, what does
_anyone_ think is going to happen to that user's "experience" of
_either_ DE when they come across an issue like "Okular insists on
printing only to A4" issue? Dive into *bug reports*?

this is like a bunch of politicians trying to legislate individual's
responsibilities & choices.

i'm simply astonished that Googling &/or directly visiting the KDE &
Gnome sites seems such an unreasonable expectation of a user.
