Multiple desktops

I know that some distros of Linux allow one to install multiple desktop environments & switch from one to another by logging out of one & logging into another. I think Linux Mint allows that.

I watched a YouTube video where multiple desktop environments were downloaded & installed into, I think, Linux Mint & the narrator switched desktops by logging out of one desktop & logging into another.

I intend to install VirtualBox on my Mac & try out different distros.

Does Bodhi allow that?

I'm coming from a Windows & Mac background & this is my 1st foray into Linux. I've spent hours on Wikipedia, YouTube & Google researching the different distros of Linux. I've made a list of contenders & I'm narrowing it down.

Some distros probably don't allow multiple desktops. I know that KDE Neon only supports KDE & won't install other desktops according to their website.

There are so many desktop environments. If there's an option to have more than one desktop on a distro than to have to install a bunch of distros each with a different desktop, then that's what I want to try.

god, just do it. try it out. no need to ask questions.

once you want to install some distro, you'd probably want to stick to some setup.
because it's just too painful to switch back & forth all the time.
could be some prefab desktop environment, could be something you built yourself.
