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%".

Right or wrong, I have to give him credit. It's a pretty bold move. He knows he's going to get alot of critcism from the Gnome camp. It takes alot of guts to make that decision.

Personally, I'm a KDE fan. And, I don't actually use Slackware right now either. So, the impact on me is going to be next to nil. Never the less, I do like Slackware's philosophy and its BSD init. And, even though I'm not using it at the moment, I do respect it.
