Hi! I'm not sure I like the new front page (but as the author of the current one I might be biased ;-) My main goal was to pack all of the important features and advantages of LinuxBIOS on the front page, so that every visitor immediately sees them on first sight (no searching around in the wiki). The page fits on one page (at least on bigger screens, e.g. 1400x1050 laptop screens), but you have to scroll with some smaller resolutions... I don't like scrolling either, but it's much more important to have all the important info on the from page, IHMO (advantages, use cases, possible payloads). --[[User:Uwe|Uwe]] 17:51, 10 March 2007 (CET)

:Thank you for your input. Your feedback is welcome. This was just a first idea, to redesign the frontpage. I thought there were too much information and "techy-talk" on it, for normal users to understand. Too much text on the frontpage is in my opinion bad, because you can get overloaded with information on the first look. Only the more interested, courios people should get more information, when they click around with their mouse. In my browser window the site doesn't fit in, because i use 1024×768Pixel resolution on my monitor. My intention was to replace the picture on the frontpage with a selfmade picture, which is not ready,yet. greetings --[[User:SvH|SvH]] 19:59, 10 March 2007 (CET)
