Slackware, Slax Slackware 11.0 contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel (default), 2.6.17.13 in /extra and 2.6.18 in the /testing directory. This Slackware version is by far the most cutting edge ever released, it includes KDE version 3.5.4 (including the Amarok media player), XFCE 4.2.3.2, the latest versions of Firefox and Thunderbird, plus SeaMonkey 1.0.5 (replacing the Mozilla suite). It also includes glibc-2.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, X11R6.9.0 from X.Org, and more.

It's simply not acceptable that GNOME isn't included - sorry. All other distributions have no problem with it.

I really don't see what you are complaining about, there are many distros that are desktop specific and don't ship with anything else. If you don't like KDE, then look for a gnome only or gnome centric distro. Better still you can install gnome on Slackware from third party developers e.g. Dropline, FreeRock etc.

given that dropline gnome was far better than slackware's implementation of gnome, not including gnome is OK - anyone who wants it will get dropline.
