One thing that would be very nice: an rc.dhcpcd startup script for the included DHCP server. It seems like the "recommended" solution is dnsmasq, but for SOHO networks, I much prefer a classical DHCP-plus-Bind approach. It's no big deal, as I've written one myself, but it would be one less thing to worry about.

Plus, it only eats a few extra bytes of space.

OpenAL Soft library used by many games. Usually it is the only thing missing to run them.

Smile trim kde

My suggestion would be to trim kde to a core installation now that it has been explowded...and offer the applications as extras. Slackware is now an excellent base to use xfce and kde with what ever applications you choose!

Looks like DejaVu Sans Mono, judging by that monowidth example.

I have a SlackBuild ready to upload as soon as SBo starts taking submissions again. It's an excellent desktop/UI font and renders great with slight hinting.

I would question the value of actually including it with Slackware, because Slackware comes with an uncustomized desktop and probably won't set it as a default font.

It's better to install just fonts you like than to have thousands of fonts in default installation you won't use. BTW, AFAIK that font even doesn't have non-latin characters.

LeafPad would be good for Xfce. OpenJRE and OpenJDK and IcedTea would be good for Java support.
