My only issue with it is, of course, that Pat dropped GNOME but there are many good GNOME builds for Slackware around and, given Slackware's simple nature, it's hardly KDE-centric unlike, say, Mandriva.

Mandriva is not really a KDE-centric distro. I have been running Mandriva 2009.0 and 2009.1 with GNOME exclusively for some time now one one of my systems. Mandriva does a very good job of integrating with GNOME.
