Go ahead and add this. --Bisasam (talk) 18:09, 27 January 2014 (EST)

Let's do something with this. I happen to agree with most choices here. --Fontain (talk) 18:03, 27 January 2014 (EST)

I created simple layout for Linux, I think we should follow something similar. Arch wiki has got a good example page structure here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/List_of_Applications --Boreq (talk) 18:05, 27 January 2014 (EST)

Sorry, Boreq, I just wanted to put that there. Someone else will have to edit the format for me, as I'm a bit too busy. --Fontain (talk) 18:07, 27 January 2014 (EST)

Sure thing, I just want to bring the last version with the previous layout to yout attention guys. http://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Recommended_software&oldid=155 We could aim at something like this, it is more clear in my opionion. --Boreq (talk) 18:15, 27 January 2014 (EST)

  • WHY are we recommending what we are recommending? Page is pretty worthless without that. That, and everything I've ever seen on /g/ specifically recommends AGAINST Tixati. And VLC Player? Is this a troll page? Toynbeeidea (talk) 07:51, 28 January 2014 (EST)

What about seperating this into Recommended software(Linux) and Recommended software(Windows)? They don't really have that much in common. Krypt0n (talk) 12:57, 28 January 2014 (EST)

We should choose a format and stick with that, right now there are several different listing types. --Nomorepancakes (talk) 15:16, 28 January 2014 (EST)

Hmm..since we want to include a WHY, what about:



Name1/w Link: Why?

Name2/w Link: Why?


Name3/w Link: Why?

and not having 10 entries per category --Krypt0n (talk) 15:25, 28 January 2014 (EST)

  • Support, assuming we're going to be wikipedos and do things the worthless bureaucrat way with votes and shit. Toynbeeidea (talk) 21:57, 28 January 2014 (EST)
Ooh, looks real good now. Just gotta start inserting reasonings. Toynbeeidea (talk) 07:55, 29 January 2014 (EST)
