Where are those pro-choice KDE users now?
by Lovechild on Sun 10th Oct 2004 22:21 UTC

I remember when UserLinux announced that they wouldn't be shipping KDE, all the KDE fnaboys screamed about choice and how it was good for us.. Now I would like to see just one of those people stand up to have GNOME supported on Slackware officially under the same guidelines. But I guess I'll have to endure the double standards of that userbase once more.

I understand that Pat is doing this basically singlehandedly, maybe it's time he reached out to the community, afterall Slackware does have a lot of capable users, surely someone could step to the plate and handle GNOME for him in the official distro.
