If I wanted to know something *about* the *Haskell Platform* I would
click the link The Haskell Platform under the section About. So it is
actually mentioned 3 times on the front page. What could be improved
are the 2 download links: "Download Haskell" and "Download GHC". It
would perhaps be better to have one nice big "Download" button that
takes you to a separate download page.

E-mail isn't the best medium to convey emotion. I read Dons reply as
"Are you sure this is a problem with the front page and not a slight
oversight on your part?"
