There's no reason why we cannot add it as one of the alternatives aside
from our default DE, which is currently an old Xubuntu (which I was
supposed to update today, but I will do tomorrow instead).
So, let's begin there, by adding it to the list of DEs.

I personally do not think it would be a good default DE, as the DE
should be something everyone can live with, especially new users who
have never used Linux before. And, we haven't been discussing a default
DE for a while now, so we would need to do that. But, perhaps later,
after we have something in place as to the DE agnostic plans.
