It gives a second desktop to fall back on, and guarantees all 
dependencies for KDE or GNOME aps, provides a fall back method to adjust 
setting such as font and such for desktop aps used in the other desktop, 
and gives the newbe the ease of switching to the other desktop until 
they decide which one they like. And installing both desktops is an easy 
way to install all standard aps for both desktops, and that new standard 
apps for the unused desktop is installed with desktop updates, so that 
it's there if you need it. Just like I like to have several internet 
browsers even though I rarely use the others. If one is giving you 
trouble, you can try the other.
