Yeah, it is good advice. I even create a new user when switching DE/WMs too. I will name them seanobriengnome or seanobrienkde or seanobrienflux...It just keeps everything clean and I can also log into multiple users and fast switch this way also. As all my personal data is in my shared partition, which is mounted in everything, it works great.
