I also prefer asking the user, some people argue that the user doesn't know 
about the difference between KDE and Gnome, but I can't see how that is bad.

If a user has a desktop of choice, she will choose the preferred desktop, 
otherwise he will just select both or a random one, but at least will be 
aware of the existance of two different desktops.

Ubuntu does basically that (people has to choose between Ubuntu and KUbuntu), 
and people seem to like it.
