I use Fluxbox, myself. Implied in what I suggested would be a kind of
writing that helps the user understand the Linux model in a more
general sense, so they would more easily be able to adapt what they
learn from the guide to topics too numerous for us to cover. If we
talk about DEs in general (example: how to I select the DE I log
into? How do I install new ones? Where can I find documentation on
other DEs?) as well as talking specifically about GNOME/KDE, then we
offer the user more choice without _necessarily_ weighing them down
with too much information.

The only reason we can't do both is because of manpower. I think
reporting documentation errors upstream would be good, but this is
something the user would be doing anyway if reading Mozilla's Firefox
documentation instead of Fedora's Firefox documentation.
