==<s>Inspired by 'The Rise of ''Worse is Better'''?</s>==
Can we add that it's inspired by http://www.jwz.org/doc/worse-is-better.html? -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 21:03, 4 November 2012 (UTC)
:Pardon my ignorance, but where/how did you find this reference? -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 15:00, 11 November 2012 (UTC)
::I remembered reading this article years ago when I was familiarizing myself with who's who of computing. I googled 'Worse is better', found out [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worse_is_better there's even a Wikipedia article about it], picked the link to Jamie Zawinski website and here it is :-)
::I think the way 'The Arch Way v2.0' is written closely resembles 'The Rise of "Worse is Better"' and since it was written later, I assume it could have been inspired by it.

:::Cool, thanks for explaining, maybe we can add:
::::''Inspired by [http://www.jwz.org/doc/worse-is-better.html The Rise of "Worse is Better"].''
:::at the top, before the ToC?
:::An alternative would be a See also section I guess, but for some reason I like it less.

::::I like it better at the top too. I found a non-pdf version of this text on Richard Gabriel's website, so I think we should use [http://dreamsongs.com/RiseOfWorseIsBetter.html this link] rather than the one I originally posted. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 06:01, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
:::::Yeah, beautiful, maybe you want to add it since the idea is yours? ^^ -- [[User:Kynikos|Kynikos]] ([[User talk:Kynikos|talk]]) 14:05, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
::::::[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=The_Arch_Way_v2.0&diff=235367&oldid=235318 Done]. If you want to change the formatting or e.g. drop the author, feel free to do so. -- [[User:Karol|Karol]] ([[User talk:Karol|talk]]) 14:22, 14 November 2012 (UTC)
