So, you took Slackware64, downloaded GnomeSlackBuild and a set of multilib packages, and called it a fork distro?

Where is the innovation? What are you adding? What makes your "fork" interesting enough for people to try it out? Will this be a pure Spanish distro?

Please do not use a Slackware forum to advertise a fork of Slackware.

you can select KDE or GNOME (in GDM), both are installed by default, i know is not really innovation but you have a slackware "based" distro with this?

Depends of the people, actually a lot of people who used slackware are using ubuntu..so innovations?
I think the exception it's the GNOME desktop.

Closed rather than deleted. Not actually spam, but notification about a new or forked or whatevered distro should go into the main Linux-Distributions area.

If you do decide to repost, it would be interesting to see how it differs from Slackware - is it just Gnome? - and how users would update and install to it; as in, how do you keep Gnome up to date when it is installed.

Good luck with Utopia.
