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%".

Good move.

Personally I think it's a good move (no offense to any Gnome fans). If you want Gnome, there are plenty of other distro's that offer a much better experience with that particular DE. Now that The Man is back, I'm looking forward to Slackware 10.1 and beyond. ;-)
