Distributions are not specific to FR at the moment, so I think it's
better to have a "shared" Distributions section. (We have that,
including intro to them and comparison.)

Additionally, I don't think Neo 1973 needs a prominent position on the
front page. I don't know how many of that was sold, but it's not
possible to buy anymore, and most users of the Wiki will come for FR
information. The ones who are coming for Neo 1973 have been doing that
for about a year so they know where to look.

(Let me know if I am wrong, I am a newbie!)

We organized the mainpage into another 3 categoies. The current
selection of articles is far from perfect, but that's because we focused
on using existing articles:

1. Newcomers - Want to know what this is, what you offer, wanna get an FR.

2. Users - Looking for info what to do with their new phone.

3. Developers - Application, system, emulation.

The "News" box was later added to show activity.

It would be very good if someone from Openmoko could "spice up" the
articles in the first category. There should be some more text with
"good spirit", to catch visitors attention.

Both "Introduction" and "Why openmoko" are far from what they should be.

Well, "Getting Openmoko" also looks strange now, that we just learned,
Openmoko is the company, Om is the software and Neo xx is the hardware
(currently). Of course all is work in progress, please send more input
if you have ideas! (Or if you think our ideas are wrong.)

Many thanks,
