Slackware, Slax On a recent IRC discussion Pat discussed Slackware's future and the restructuring that will happen for Slackware 11. Regarding the removal of Gnome from Slackware, he said: "GNOME is not easy to build into packages, lacks decent documentation to build, and requires many undocumented system changes for things to work 100%".

It's really good to see Patrick is back on top of things, not just for Slackware but for himself. Interesting to see comments about some increased co-operation in the Slackware community...maybe dropline could maintain GNOME rather than Slackware dropping it's support altogether?
