As a long time user of Slackware, I am very pleased that some of my friends directed me to centos. I needed to upgrade my workstation from 10.2 for security reasons and in all future versions of slackware, they got rid of gnome. I have found a new home here and I want to pass on my appreciation to the people who make this great distribution possible. From the bottom of my heart, thank you centos developers! Mike Bosse'
