...which is switched off on many browsers due to security
issues (and for popup blocking, of course :).

The page looaks horrible in konqueror, and not every novice
user will install and try firefox instead. I'd remove all the
JS specific stuff. Concerning JS, I think it's OK to use a
bit of JS if it doesn't affect the looks on other browsers
and as long the page can be still navigated without JS.

I do not agree generally :) . There are really huge efforts to
make linux audio more user friendly.

It's not specific for audio ;-) .

I guess the page is currently under heavy development. I think
it's a very good idea to create such a page so novice users
can get an immediate overview over the most important linux
audio applications.

I'd like to share the following thoughts:

* I'd remove most of the JS code
* I'd resize the top level banner. It wastes lots of
screenspace. No prob here (1400x1050) but I guess there are
still citicens with 800x600 on the web
* OK, content will be done over time

I really like the idea so thanks for the work.

Best regards
