The problem is that people always argue that desktop environments gets shortchanged by distributions unless it's available at install time.
I have never seen it that way, but whatever.

Ubuntu has spins for most of the DEs where the spin propritizes that DE (kubuntu for KDE, lubuntu for LXDE, etc), so I'd say it's a little less true than for distros that don't offer such spins.

Personally I think it's silly. I never understood what was so horrible about 'tasksel install kde-desktop' or whatever is the equivalent.
