Small, but important things

In regards to both the colour scheme and the layout of the header, can we take the work that was previously done on and put it to work here?

Looking at these two sites side by side at the moment the usability one seems a lot more attractive based upon these two factors. 

I can have a go at merging some of the work that was done on the usability site into the existing wwwtesting one tonight if people agree it would be worthwhile.

No, think UNIX must stay, Linux is simply wrong. And I don't like the idea of 
comparing with windows and apple on the first page. That sounds like: KDE is 
cheap copy of windows and apple style GUI's for Linux.
