RE: Slackware and window managers

"Oh lord, I cannot believe the pathetic manipulation some of you people are trying to pull here. Contrary to many posts here, it's not the end of the world, and you'd still have Dropline!"

I agree. I believe Pat should focus his resources exclusively on Slackware. I absolutely love Slackware. It frigin' rocks and is solid.

Let the GNOME and KDE people focus on the window managers. Personally, I use Dropline GNOME since it is extrememly stable on my machine and intergrates well into Slackware. I dislike KDE. That is not a jab at people who use it or like it.
