How do I install multiple window managers in Ubuntu, i.e. To have KDE, Gnome and E17 to compare and test the differences for myself?

Secondly, how do I switch between them?

    You install them via Synaptic or other package manager:
    kubuntu-desktop - for KDE
    e16 - for Enlightenment
    ubuntu-desktop - for Gnome

    At the login screen, you'll have to select the window manager you want to use from the Session drop-down menu.
