It is free software. The people that invest their spare time in working
on free software of course do that for making the software fit their own
purpose, if you like it or not. Because of that, any free software's
license comes with a statement like that:

So you've been warned.

Why do you think you have the right to demand any maintenance and
development work done by *others* in the direction that pleases *you*?
That's a quite anti-social attitude.
Beside from that, it's not that there are too few options for window
managers and complete desktop environments in the free software
ecosystem like KDE, GNOME, XFCE, LXDE, Enlightenment, just to name the
most prominent DEs.
