How wrong is this? (i.e. is this a popular mistake, or is it just
coincidence that both me and the person that actually wrote this think of
it this way?)

I have the feeling that "minimalistic" is a good English word, but since
I'm not a native English speaker, I could be completely wrong here.

Thanks for your help.
