Greek translations

We currently have Attic and Demotic.

I think more translations should be added, such as Katharevousa, Pontic or any local dialect. Speakers are few nowadays, so if anyone can contribute, please do. Sudowoodo (talk) 09:29, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

C code

This comment, while ironic in a tone, seems to have a point. Is the C code unnecessary bloated and not in the Arch way?

Wouldn't this be better? (simple hello world repurpose)

   int main(void) {
       printf("Arch is the best!\n");
       return 0;

Same issue with the C++ version. -- Rdeckard (talk), Maintainer 13:50, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
I thought it might be some involved meta joke I'm not getting. The same with the three space indentation. --JonnyRobbie (talk) 14:17, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
+1, but still incl. the 3-space meta nudge towards python. --Indigo (talk) 15:02, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
On second thought: you might as well argue against printf because it's turing-complete [1], and stdlib just provides a symbolic constant here for added clarity. Together with the remark below, this can be closed. -- Alad (talk) 20:16, 1 July 2016 (UTC)
I'll argue that it's not better at all, GCC 5.3 generates identical binary for both versions, even with default options. The reddit post is complete nonsense.
Besides, nitpicking about indentation width and minimality of this code is the least concern compared to the X11 example or any esoteric language.
