> Upgrading to the latest version of shiny distro should not trash an already functional setup.

So if you include a DE in a distro, you then have to support it forever?

If you're a desktop oriented distro, and it's the default one, then my answer is: yes, you have to.

Forever is a very strong word. I would put it this way: "if you include a DE in a distro, a desktop oriented distro, and it's the default one, an upgrade the user does each six months should not trash said environment's functionality without recourse."
