I've been thinking do we really need the "Conquer your desktop" blurb at the 
top of the home page? It really reads like something that belongs on the 
"What is KDE" page and shifts the regularly updated content too far down.

Alternatively we could shorten it to just one paragraph, also I think the 
links for  Latest Anoucements, Latest News, Latest Applications could be 
moved up into the empty space within the blue bar aong with the Inform link 
on the left and the search on the right, that will also move up the content.

Thoughts? I haven't done the changes as they are only relatively minor and 
wanted to guage people's opinion first.
