In my experience when a user has two or more DE's installed, it is
because they had one installed to begin with, then they installed a
package which pulled in an entirly different DE. For me, this is the
most frequent cause of multiple DE's. And it is not that rare,
especially for new Linux users that don't know that there are packages
sitting in the same repo's designed for one DE but not the rest.
