If I actually used top after discovering htop, I would prefer the old look (which our new procps-ng maintainer has apparently made an executive decision to use).

Why would you rebuild it, though, just to modify the *default* configuration? Why not create your own /etc/topdefaultrc? It's ironic, I guess, that the procps-ng developers did this in order to provoke people into learning how to configure top, but now we have people preferring the old look, who complain when the default changes, and then when we revert to the old look we have people complaining about the old look, but no one seems interested in, well, configuring it as upstream intended... (Kudos to Jonathon for being principled enough in both desiring distro-customized defaults for Manjaro users and implementing them the right way. I wonder if anyone will actually learn how to use top though...) -- Eli Schwartz Bug Wrangler and Trusted User
