I think more translations should be added, such as [[wikipedia:Katharevousa|Katharevousa]], [[wikipedia:Pontic Greek|Pontic]] or any local dialect.

This comment https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/comments/4g0y7v/arch_is_the_best/d2dq13e, 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)
 
 
    #include<stdio.h>
 
   
 
    int main(void) {
 
        printf("Arch is the best!\n");
 
        return 0;

::::On second thought: you might as well argue against printf because it's turing-complete [https://github.com/HexHive/printbf], and stdlib just provides a symbolic constant here for added clarity.

: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.

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)
