The reason for defaults is to help new users because they cannot make a
choice. That's why there are defaults for the filesystem, browser, email-
client, chat client, package patterns in general etc.

A new user does not know what KDE or Gnome is, how should he make a choice?
You could as well put a "feeling lucky" button there.

How did you choose your desktop the first time?, did you know anything
about any desktop env?

If the user does not know, then let him investigate, search, ask. Why
make the choice for them?

Current desktop selection windows is not good too. Option buttons
should be replaced by check boxes, and let the user install all
desktops if he/she wants.

I don't understand, this isn't the first time you kde's users are
trying to make it default. Why?
No the reasons given in openfate are just a mere excuse.
