Any desktop environment is not about choice.. it is about usability for a new user. KDE makes decisions for you, GNOME makes decisions for you, AfterStep makes decisions for you... if you dont agree with those decisions there are lots of other people who may have written something that you will agree with. And you can always get someone (or spend the time yourself) to package it up for you in that way.
I have seen these arguments going on for 17+ years... how FVWM dumbed down TWM.. and how the keybindings in FVWM were superior than TWM. And then there were guys who argued that the X system was a hack of stuff they had done with ASCII in the 70's ..
