Summary

Probably the oldest (by a couple of months) distro still in common use, Slackware still remains largely the work of Patrick J. Volkerding. There was a minor controversy when Gnome was dropped from the latest release, although support for GTK programs was never in doubt.

The long-standing Dropline Gnome; and Freerock Gnome/GSB and GWare Gnome seem to be the most popular.
