It means that he is running GNOME session called Default.
For detection of latest KDE you can use variable KDE_FULL_SESSION.
These variables are set by host computer, not by display computer, so it
works for session started remotely, too.

These two are distribution specific.

Most people want to integrate only actually running desktop. Integrating
"alien" command (started from different machine) is much more
complicated - it can have different environment, theme, different home
