I just copy/paste/paste/paste already working config fragment...

As far I know, "try_files $uri $uri/ @joomla;" directive
and "error_page 404 = @joomla;" with "log_not_found off;"

has the same behaviour, - this is written at russian documentation.

As I can see in http://nginx.org/en/CHANGES
try_files first appeared in nginx 0.7.27, and last known bug
with try_files was fixed in nginx 0.8.39, so in older versions
of nginx error_page 404 with log_not_found off; may be better,
or may be the only one way to do such things.

and main purpose of try_files - is just to be syntactic sugar
for config files to be more clean and easy to read/understand.
as in C language a[i] notation is syntactic sugar for *(a + i)
