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. --[[User:Foxbunny|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. [[User:Misfit138|Misfit138]] 21:47, 18 June 2011 (EDT)
