I like the colour theme of the former and the layout of the latter.
The colour theme of the first is more professional, I think. I vote
that styles should be consistent. When Haskell.org's theme finally
gets updated, Haskell will feel a lot more modern on the web, and
making that feeling go with you across the Haskell sites is important
to me. I would've provided a design myself, expanding upon this,[1] I
suppose, but time constraints are against me. I think layout of the
latter is very good, very obvious. Colours are just a bit fruit salad.
