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 having gnome is another reason for me to stay away from slackware, I dont like KDE as the only main desktop, xfce is
okay but gnome is still the one i like.Suse does a pretty good job with all their managers.
