I really like the background image; it's nicely striking and much more 
memorable than the diver. The font selection, color scheme, and central 
logo are decent, but I'm not a fan of the presentation of the OS icons 
nor the content of the footer. The two-box "What is Haskell?","What is 
the Haskell Platform?" footer works a lot better IMO.  The icons are a 
bit harder to fix though; right now they look bolted on and 
discontinuous with the rest of the design.

Live well,
