Lightbulb LinuxIntro.com 2.0


Hey guys, i've just remodeled http://LinuxIntro.com and was wanting to get an opinion on the navigation. I tried to make it as logically navigable as possible, but there are some menu items i'm thinking about merging (like 'Administration' and 'Configuration'). The whole point to this website it for people who are brand new to Linux, to be able to land on the front page, and be able to go from there, all the way to customizing their desktop, without ever getting lost in the menu. The world needs more Linux users, and one by one i'm doing what i can to help . I've already gotten about 60-100 people to switch to Linux with the old--crappy version of the site ( http://linuxintro.com/images/1.jpg ), but i want it to really have a maximum affect this time around, so any suggestions are appreciated.


Thanx

A noble goal you have there for your site, and layout is reasonably nice. All I can recommend is that you make that button "Start you journey" bigger, more visible, and center it, it took me a while to find it, this would be good to do with the "Prev" and "Next" buttons too (not centered tho).

Good luck.

Get rid of the black background! I'm not the only one that can't stand to look at even one page of that.

Although I like the colors orange and black together, on a web page it's just really horrible on the eyes.
