It does not use Gnome because the user base and the Slackware creator Patrick Volkerding
decided that KDE was a much better and more polished desktop solution than Gnome.
The Gnome libraries are still included so that you can run Gnome apps but the desktop is
not put on the disks any longer. I agree with this but then I am biased I have been useing KDE
since the version 1.2 days.
