Restoration of the list
I disagree with Special:Diff/558920.
- Add back the list of applications. It's much easier to overview the applications in a list, and this is the standard way on the ArchWiki.
I think splitting the information makes it harder for the reader because they now have to jump between the list and the table. For example if you want to install an application from the table or read the description of a row you now have to search the list above. Furthermore your list duplicates the links and file format support from the table, which makes the article harder to maintain.
Anyway, you're the list guy and I'm the table guy, so it might be inevitable that we disagree on this. It would be nice if others could chime in. Previous version for comparison.
- We use lists for all other applications. If we decide to omit the lists, and use tables, then I think we need to replace the list with tables in all articles. However I prefer the list for the following reasons:
- It's easier to read on small displays.
- Lists can have long description text with all important details.
- There is enough space to display the official URL of the project.
- Comparison tables are great, but they should not replace the application lists I think. The tables have many custom columns, which makes it harder to search for the basic, standard information that can be found in the lists.
