An option for the preferred Window Manager (KDE, GNOME and LXDE(?)) would be 
great. 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-
