This page list which desktop environments or window managers are available in which FSDG distributions.

Some distributions have installers for specific desktop environments, that directly install the distribution with a specific desktop environment. While most of the time it's really trivial to install additional desktop environments or window managers once the system is installed, having a specific installer shows that the desktop environment is well supported by the distribution, and it can also be convenient as users don't need to install extra packages to get things working.
