Unless a particular distro modifies it then the intial DE still looks the same, but like you saw in my desktop ss it can be configured just like any linux DE.
The looks were secondary though tbh - I've never been able to use KDE without something crashing within the first 2 weeks of use. Sure enough, within 2 days of installing SUSE a while back apps were crashing. Ugh. Gnome has been 100% stable for me.
