Although not everybody likes GNOME, there are useful GTK+ and GNOME applications that many might choose to run while logged into KDE or one of the other available desktops.I would like to know about some useful GNOME applications not having equivalent or better counterpart in KDE. If you are speaking about GTK+, Slackware fully supports this toolkit and you may find in repositories many unique gtk-based apps like Gimp, gFTP or XFce desktop for example.
Concerning "cumbersome" way of upgrading in Slackware I'd suggest to check, install and use official tool slackpkg from extra subdirectory. May be you'll be more satisfied.
