Show screenshots to help user choose which desktop to install
Currently, when the user chooses the type of Desktop they want to install they are presented with a rather 'boring' menu with lots of text, describing a little about GNOME, KDE, and how they get to choose
I would like to see screenshots, possibly even a slideshow, of at least GNOME and KDE if not XFCE & LXDE for users to see and help them make their choice about which desktop environment they wish to install.
We have KDE selected by default, covering the 'I don't care/know just let me install this thing' userbase
More advanced users probably have enough knowledge that they never read the text and already have their decision made and go straight to their DE of choice
But I think we currently do a disservice to an important demographic of inquisitive users who want to choose but might not have the information yet to make one
Right now, a user who doesn't know what GNOME or KDE looks like get nothing from our installer, they have to install it, try it, and if they dont like it, install the other one..
I'd argue inquisitive users is one group openSUSE is brilliantly placed to serve, as we offer so many options, so let's make it a little easier for them to make an initial choice they will be more likely to like from day 1
