Good afternoon, Kevin.

Yeah, I figured there was something like that... but when you say 
"switchdesk KDE" and there is no KDE, switchdesk tells you to 
groupinstall "KDE Software Development".

Is there anything in kde-desktop that's not in KDE Software 
Development?  In other words, after you have installed "KDE Software 
Development" is there any advantage to then installing kde-desktop"?
