1 - the 'about' blurb has way too much vertical spacing == wasted
3 - the ad bar on the left should be thrown behind a purple bar like the
4 current site does ... it helps the user visually tune the space out as
5 crap they can safely ignore (at least it helps me)
6 - can we cut out the ads alogether for known textmode browsers ?
8 - the bar at the top which blathers on about what Gentoo has to offer
9 i could do without completely (imo, you can read the About page)
10 - if people insist on keeping the aforementioned bar which proclaims
11 Gentoo's strengths, can we at least tighten up all the wasted
12 vertical space on it ?
14 - the links in the site index thingies at the bottom dont have mouse
15 over behavior like the other links
17 - the 'gentoo' text in the upper left of the page should use the cool
18 red bubble letters [1] ... or at least drop the infinity sign ...
19 yeah, the infinity sign is cool, but since it is in such a 'high
20 profile' location like that, it makes people think of it as a new logo

23 - the little pic of larry the cow ... could we get some tiny text
24 under his head that says 'Larry' ?
25 - wheres the ufo guy [2] ? at least hide him in the bottom left
26 corner of the page ... it'd keep with the mysterious nature of the
27 fellow
