As Samuel said, don't mix "beautiful" and "useful" or even "easy to use".
State the subject clearly and stick to it. The reason the Hurd doesn't
have a good web site, or good documentation, or good performance, or
good device support, etc..., is the same as always : too few people.

I'm pretty sure changing the web site won't change much to that, there
needs to be some momentum to bootstrap the first changes in what people
care most about (which for me is a much more reliable system than what
it currently is, or could be without too much effort) and then it'll
attract people.

To all who whine about information not being easy to find : sure, it
could be better, but it's there, so if people give up that quickly, I
believe it says more about our current culture, or even the character
of these people, than it says about the project itself. Grow up and
focus on what matters.
