I have a friend who is new to Ubuntu, and he wants to find the right Desktop Environment. I'd like to be able to recommend that he simply install several of the major DE's simultaneously, then try them out one at a time, selecting between them from the login screen. But I'm reluctant to recommend this. In the past, I've been bitten by installing more than one DE at a time. Here's a past example: https://bugs.launchpad.net/unity/+bug/751374
Does anyone know of any current nasty bugs where any of these DE's will "step on each other's toes"? Can I just trust that it's safe to install all of the following simultaneously?
