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%".

RE: bloated???

I really can't understand why most people feel the need to call "bloated" the software they don't like. Why gnome is bloated? kde is as bloated as gnome, the only difference is that kde calls kde-base a huge package with everything in, while gnome prefers a single package for every program or utility.
