It's pretty obvious what was being referred to: https://www.debian.org/.

Really? I agree with Richard. With the present home page it is easy to
find what you want without clicking all over the place or drilling down.
Most of the important things are there at your fingertips. Mailing lists.
Downloads. Documentation. All visible. All immediately accessible.

The proposed page is some sort of adverti for Debian. The large image
signals that. The only prominent download link gives the user Xfce.
