The part that says "Arch Linux defines simplicity as a lightweight base structure without unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications..." basically contradicts itself. It has a lot of clutter that might use a revert to the original version Dusty and I wrote. See for yourself. Are "additions" and "modifications" unnecessary? No. They are just not considered base structure. But they are certainly needed if you want to do something useful. Any attempt to further explain the "lightweight base structure" is just adding clutter. The same can be said of many parts in the article. I haven't checked back on it for a long time, but it seems people have just added a lot of stuff without cleaning it up. --foxbunny 18:33, 14 May 2010 (EDT)

In the phrase, "unnecessary additions, modifications, or complications..." the 'additions' and 'modifications' are both described by the adjective 'unnecessary'. Therefore, in English, it is read and understood to mean that such unnecessary modification is to be avoided, if possible. Misfit138 21:47, 18 June 2011 (EDT)

I've spotted an acronym!

1 Simplicity
2 Code-correctness over convenience
3 User-centric
4 Openness
5 Freedom

Rearrange it as 5,4,2,3,1 and it becomes "FOCUS"!

Great! If you can find the other 15 easter eggs in the wiki, solve the resulting riddle, and find the jade monkey before the next full moon, you'll get a pleasant surprise! -- Kynikos 13:37, 10 October 2011 (EDT)
Is the fact that you posted this at leet time one of the easter eggs?
LOL definitely!! XD -- Kynikos (talk) 10:08, 10 June 2012 (UTC)

User Centric

Any that have permision can chage this to relly in User centric but for how this manage they own sistem Actually relly in recent changes (Rc.conf split, new arch iso) is demotrated that User oly have control ower they own machina and NOT neither never over devs decicion either if thece dession are pro or con the Arch-way
