Do you think a GTK implementation in Python would be a bit long to add to the article? Here it is:


import pygtk
import gtk
import random

class ArchIsTheBest:
	def __init__(self):
		window = gtk.Window(gtk.WINDOW_TOPLEVEL)
		window.set_title("Arch is the best!")
		window.connect("delete_event", self.delete_event)
		window.connect("destroy", self.destroy)
		vbox = gtk.VBox(False, 0)
		textview = gtk.TextView(buffer=None)
		textviewb = textview.get_buffer()
		textviewt = "Arch is the best"
		vbox.pack_start(textview, True, True, 0)
		button = gtk.Button(stock=gtk.STOCK_CLOSE)
		button.connect("clicked", lambda w: gtk.main_quit())
		vbox.pack_start(button, False, False, 0)

	def delete_event(self, widget, event, data=None):
		return False
	def destroy(self, widget, data=None):

	def main(self):

if __name__ == "__main__":
	archisthebest = ArchIsTheBest()

Also, is it possibly violating The Arch Way by providing a GUI to this application? I think it may just entice those Ubuntu users to jump ship to Arch if we provide this as a GUI, however it is definitely not 'simple'. Barrucadu 19:25, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Whilst the forum thread relating to this is fun, this page does not add anything meaningful to the Arch wiki, and I don't see how this page adheres to the wiki philosophy or Arch principles (KISS minimalism). Have flagged this page for deletion. Joetotale 05:42, 9 January 2011 (EST)

I agree. I marked it for deletion some time ago, and didn't really feel like pursuing the subject because it would've been an exchange involving a grand total of 2 people.
There's always some truth to irony, and 'Arch is the best' is implicit enough to survive undetected under the reach of armchair psychology! Lavandero 18:32, 10 January 2011 (EST)
I DISagree ^_^. This is an interesting and fun project, and causes no harm for being here. Not only was the page created by an Arch developer, deletion has been removed before by a WIKI ADMIN "(unmarking for deletion (no rationale -- I think this is clever); marked for expansion; categorized)" I should probably put back on the expansion template. Enjoy life, have fun, don't hate on fun. Jmad980 21:27, 2 February 2011 (EST)
