Good idea
by Daniel de Kok on Sun 10th Oct 2004 13:12 UTC

I'd support dropping GNOME, and optionally KDE. Many (older) Slackware supporters always stuck with Slackware because it is simple, flexible and transperant. It is a rock-stable base one could build upon.

But I think it would be a good idea to drop KDE too, KDE.org has fairly good builds for Slackware, and it would help to slim down Slackware a whole lot.

But after all, it is Patrick's distro. It is his choice.
