That may be right, but that is probably also how it should be.  I
don't mind the fact that Wikipedia is the only top 10 website (in
terms of visitors), that has not adopted Web 2.0.  And hell, if you
look at other information gathering sites, like archive.org, then
Wikipedia is miles ahead in terms of appearance.

I do not think it is fair to call Wikipedia Geocities-esque, because
it is way beyond that.  That or she cannot remember how Geocities
website looked like.
