News of this seems to be causing quite a stir among commentators and not many other people. There's a reason for that. While they like to draw a parallel to QT, which was licensed more restrictively in the past, there really isn't one
Dropline 2.14.0, released last month, lets you add the GNOME desktop environment to Slackware. It consists of 271 compressed package format files on a single CD. Using dropline on top of Slackware is like putting icing on a cake.
