I like it, except for those pictures in the right, they are a little too in your face. I do think we should have a screenshot on the homepage, but I think it should be something a little more subtle than that (and by that I mean smaller sized, like the way we currently have it but not emphasizing the horizontal menus). I think the bulk of the screenshots should be included in the Applications page.

I don't know about everyone else, but when I first visit a site for an application, toolkit, or even programming language, I check out the screenshots. It helps me to better understand what the project is all about by being able to see how I might interact with it. Putting access to those images in a readily visible location, and making sure that that homepage image gets updated regularly (weekly, probably), does a couple positive things for us:

1) It inspires the visitors to our site by showing them what can be built with GNUstep
2) It shows that we take pride in the visual design of our software
3) It rewards those GNUstep developers who make cool and intuitive UIs
4) It pushes us to keep building new apps (so that we don't grow stale by having 40 images of code editors on there ;) )
