The Ubuntu Studio team has announced they are looking at offering a second desktop option to their multimedia-focused distribution. Ubuntu Studio, unlike other Ubuntu community editions, is not set up to focus on a specific desktop environment and the team is evaluating which desktop (or desktops) might best suit their goals. "In the end and for the reasons described in this mailing list post, the Ubuntu Studio team would like to announce its first alternative desktop environment as KDE's Plasma. We found it would be much easier to implement than most desktops at this time, and has struck a balance between form and functionality. We want to be clear: Ubuntu Studio is not changing default desktop at this time. Some considerations are being made to make desktop selection available at install time, but to minimize DVD image file size we are also considering offering two separate ISOs." Further information can be found in the project's blog post.
