Also for or maybe even especially for non-expert mode. As a description there could be a clause that states: The default window manager is set to KDE which is a fine default. If you do not know what this question means, just leave the default. I think that the window manager names are only unknown to the very linux beginners. Everyone else might well benefit from this new question-number-8- debconf-screen.
