Somewhat verbose information on Lighter alternative

Talk status
This discussion is done.

With only one mention of a lighter alternative in the DE list (the GNOME light package), it seems to me that the list can be removed, with listing gnome-light as another DE. --Whalehunter (talk) 14:28, 12 October 2018 (UTC)

Strange character at end of Budgie description

Talk status
This discussion is done as of 2022-05-26.

On my Gentoo box, I have a weird character showing when viewing or editing this article. It is present in Firefox (see image below), in Chrome, and in links in a VT. It shows as a normal parenthesis on my phone, with both Chrome and Firefox... I never usually have issues with strange characters in my browser (surprisingly !).

I would suppose it was an issue on my end, but why are all other parentheses OK, and why does it happen in a text terminal, outside X...?

I'm guessing it might be a Unicode character that looks like a parenthesis but isn't - so on this basis I'm going to try and replace it by copying and pasting one of the ones that show up correctly...

Please tell me if I've got something wrong here - this just feels weird, I may be missing something obvious xD.

I can't reproduce on my machine, and also checked the source and saw nothing there. It seems whatever was there got removed from 2021 to now. Closing. --Redstrate (talk) 22:42, 26 May 2022 (UTC)
