sorry for the late answer, I was busy with other things.

I saw multiple problems with the current page:

+ A carousel is a very poor way to represent information. There were multi studies proving that almost nobody bothers to read the slides
+ The explanation about KDE are terrible: I tried sending it to some friend who are not in the Linux/Open Source scene and nobody could find what
KDE is only from the homepage. The SEO of the homepage is also quite poor.
+ The homepage is representing 27% of the visits of and improving it could help a lot
+ I also want to help improve the image of KDE == community


(sending it again since I replied to Scott only the first time)

> This looks pretty good overall Carl. Was there specific problems that this redesign is trying to solve? I guess I am trying to get in your mind a bit. I am not sure what type of data or feedback we currently get about the KDE site...and how this is going to be easier/better for people. That helps with decision making a lot -- especially when there are disagreements with what to do or not to do.

Are there many people trying to view this on a 4K monitor?  For this KDE site it might not matter, but for applications it can be really important. For example if most people that are going to your site have a 1366 x 768 monitor, you better make sure your application works well at that screen size.
