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%".

Installing GNOME is a work of art. Yes, it can be a headake.
But one thing that you can live without is GTK+ .. One goog thing would be the removal of both GNOME and KDE and theire replacement with XFCE, witch is compatible with both of them. You can very easly run all the apps, and XFCE is the fastest desktop enviroment.
