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%".

I think it is not bad, that pat has stop the support for gnome. Dropline is doing an execellent. I had the honor to be a part of it for the 2.8.2 release. There are some really talented persons included.
Slackware will never be replaced by distros like arch or ubuntu, because they aim different aims. Slackware is slick and stable, no annoying depencies packages management. I hope it stays that way.....
