Hi Urias, Jonas & Tom,

Also, the description of Haiku in the upper left corner seems like a waste of precious space. People who visit the site often will not need to read that - it should
be replaced with a "What is Haiku" link or something IMO.
We need the frontpage to inspire curiosity in first-time visitors, and if possible, get them hooked on Haiku. If a person starts reading the intro blurb (and likes it), he/she might just stay long enough to figure out what other link to click: screenshots, general architecture, team page or whatever one might want to know as a new-comer. I think it would be a mistake to not have any easy content on the frontpage. It's like free sausage snippets at the supermarket.
While I really like this mockup (clean and to the point), I really think Haiku should more strongly emphasize its heritage (BeOS). Since most of the potential initial userbase will consist of die-hard BeOS fans such as myself, emphasizing this part of Haiku's past is critical, I think.
Hi Thom. :-)
The BeOS heritage will be in the FAQ (if it isn't already there).
