I'd like to post a few suggestions to the website.

* Change the mainpage to a newspage.
- I really think that people should see a more generic first-page, a page with "about" would be more suitable for the current text that is at the mainpage. How about some news instead? Not talking about a flood of news aka some typical phpnuke site, but some informative simple text, and just some news (for example about the new release).

* Change alot of the text at the download page

"There are several ways to install DragonFly on your computer. Some of these methods require prior BSD experience with tools like disklabel or boot0cfg, and we have no completed installation program at this point."

Well, we do have a installation program at this point now, don't we? :-)

"DragonFly CDs are 'live', meaning these CDs will boot your system and let you log in as root (no password) and install to your IDE disk-based system. Make sure you read the README file, as this is not an automated installation."

Well, I dont think most people will install manually now that the installer is in place.
IDE disk-based system? Well, dragon.BSDTech.com is all SCSI, and it got installed from the nymphia iso a week ago :-)

"An installer program for DragonFly is in beta, based off of recent DragonFly releases"

Well, it's now in base so perhaps the text should be changed so that people will know where the home of the installer is rather where they can get it. Perhaps on another page? I'm not really sure.

- Erik
