Re: Simplifying skolelinux.org as a showcase
Hi guys, i've been away from this list for so very long, I'm still
running pr05, because i live by the philosophy, if it ain't broke,
don't fix it. I'll eventually upgrade, when i can get myself together
to do some new full installs, and just migrate all the data across to
fresh machines *speaking of which, does anyone have a HowTo, on the
best way to migrate to other machines?*
The real reason for the post, is that picture I just saw, i HAD to
send it to three non computer literate teachers, just to see their
reaction - just from the one screen shot - they said it is a product
that they'll investigate.
I have to admit, it looks brilliant, the second the site launches,
let me know, so that I can forward it to the straight away, it looks
Thanks to all the guys doing great work on this - it is much

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.

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
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
(about, news...), Quick links. Isn't that too confusing?
On the other hand, I must agree to Jonas and others that even a
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
SVN sources (like those gorgeous maps of schools).
I hope that this discussion could go on more constructive rather than
drawing artificial borderlines...
