I don't get it. What is the pattern on the wallpaper supposed to tell me?

Despite the first column being entirely black, it's 4 rows of 8 columns.

Okay, due to the checkers pattern, it took me a while:

>>> l = [0b01100001, 0b01110010, 0b01100011, 0b01101000]
>>> l
[97, 114, 99, 104]
>>> ''.join(chr(i) for i in l)
'arch'
>>>

Nice. big_smile

Sounds like some crazy manifesto. Some things in Arch are in fact, easier than in other distributions - in particular, creating packages. So that's a good reason to use it.

I'm also pretty sure it's blatant plagiarism...
