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%".

not a big deal..

I don't see this as a big deal. I'm a Slackware and Gnome user, but I don't expect to notice the removal of Gnome from future Slackware releases.

I use Dropline Gnome, so as long as they don't close up shop, I'm okay. ;)

I've been very happy with Dropline Gnome, infact it's the only version of Gnome I've used on Slackware. And for me it's been the best desktop Linux solution I've been able to find. I'm very content with Slackware / Dropline.
