In general, what is the prevailing philosophy on removing out of date information? Regarding the fglrx page, a lot of the stuff is regarding historical patches for old driver versions, and really ceases to be useful now. Nevertheless, there is possibly a rare situation where a person constrained to an older kernel / driver for hardware issues would need to reference this stuff. I guess the person could always dig through the diffs to find out what has happened in the past.
I think a moderate pruning approach is best, where really arcane / historical issues are simply deleted, and anything a user might realistically run into can be briefly summarized...

Wiki-formatting blocks of text from files
Is there a convention or established best way to format a larger block of text that's used for displaying the contents of a file - for example, when documenting a configuration file or instructing the reader to enter a block of text into an editor?
An example of what I'm talking about:
Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Device "Intel Corporation Mobile Integrated Graphics Controller" Monitor "Generic Monitor" DefaultDepth 24 SubSection "Display" Depth 24 Modes "1024x768" EndSubSection EndSection

What do I mean by "Change links to pages that are less Wikipedia-psycho."? The page originally link spends a lot of time discussion Wikipedia policy about referencing sources, points of view, copyright, etc.
In my opinion, ThinkWiki doesn't need to focus on policy as much, since it's intended for a much more narrow audience than Wikipedia. So, I linked to a couple of pages that start closer to the nitty-gritty of mark-up code. -- Pi3832 18:24, 7 December 2009 (UTC)
