New article about Arch Post installation

In case someone will have time to look at this before I do:

Yet another unsupported blog post. Step 4 is installing an unsupported AUR helper from a notoriously broken user repository, the other 26 are commands to install other questionable packages. -- Alad (talk) 10:38, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
I don't know if I would call all of those packages "questionable", but I certainly wouldn't recommend that any Arch user start off a fresh installation by installing three pacman wrappers, ten web browsers, four desktop theme packages, and two cloud storage services. Also I laughed out loud at "JAVA is necessary to run most of the applications in Linux and windows machine." I think a more appropriate title for that article would be "Things which can be installed on Arch Linux". It definitely does not belong on this wiki. Silverhammermba (talk) 12:42, 19 July 2016 (UTC)
