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%".

Well,
Personally I'm a Slackware and GNOME fan...but I always install dropline right away anyways... I really think its a good move by Pat since most people who used GNOME on slackware already use Dropline anyways. ^_^

I can't wait for a new Slackware!
