Ok, let me clear this up. There seems to be some misinformation
floating around here.
Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS will remain Xfce. Support will continue until
Ubuntu Studio 20.10 and onward will be KDE Plasma.
Ubuntu Studio Installer lets you put Ubuntu Studio on whatever
official flavor of Ubuntu you decide, and therefore whatever Desktop
Environment you decide. For instance, to use Xfce with Ubuntu Studio
20.10 you'd install Xubuntu and then use Ubuntu Studio Installer
(https://ubuntustudio.org/ubuntu-studio-installer) to install the
tools and backend configurations on Xubuntu. You can do the same with
Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Ubuntu Budgie, Ubuntu Kylin, and Ubuntu MATE.
At no point do we ever recommend installing an additional desktop
environment on any flavor of Ubuntu as we, and other Ubuntu flavors,
simply cannot support it.
For those that wish to preview Ubuntu Studio with the KDE Plasma
switchover complete, you can look at the Ubuntu Studio Groovy Gorilla
daily images at http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntustudio/dvd/current.
I hope that clears things up.
