Yes, I think that is better.  Let me explain why I think this is better.
When I start browsing a site by typing an url like
I consider the first page I see a starting page.  
I expect that all content is reachable from this page and when I am
lost on the site I want to go back to this page.  
If every page contains a link to this starting page I feel that there
is always a "known" place to go back to.  
If such a link is not there I feel a little bit lost.

For this to work the link should be clearly visible, so hiding
it under the GNUstep logo is not as effective.

Now I know the GNUstep site a little so it is not as bad, but
I try to look at it with fresh eyes.
