Re: Simplifying skolelinux.org as a showcase

Dear Knut and others,

thank you for the mockup. For marketing reasons, I  agree, that 
marketing needs a package looking as tasty as its content. 

(This is also the reason why I won't stop pleaing for KDE mockups)

From this point of view, your surface is excellent - and I can 
absolutely support the idea of having another anchor to our wiki pages 
which happens to be just "sexy". 

As you ask for comments: Well, the colouring is alright, maybe even too 
sober (I never stop telling Ubuntu guys that "bunt" in German means 
"colourfull"), but I'd rather focus on the menus:

Note that there are quite a few of them: Top row (home, ...), title bar 
(about, news...), Quick links. Isn't that too confusing?

On the other hand, I must agree to Jonas and others that even a showcase 
needs to be updated from time to time, especially if you want to feed 
it with "Latest news" (or add translations). So indeed, we must find a 
way to have a professional frontpage without locking out ourselves 
(i.e. keep the key). 

A sudden alternative idea could be a script that builds a neat page from 
SVN sources (like those gorgeous maps of schools).

I hope that this discussion could go on more constructive rather than 
drawing artificial borderlines...
