I am fond of the prompt> There was a console program a long time ago called Quick that was a GUI for the old DOS prompt. I loved it. You had the power of the CLI and the usefulness of the GUI. They made it so easy to use the CLI that it was a great learning tool. You picked up the commands and attributes over time.

I also like websites that are simple hierarchical structures. This takes time to organize but the results are simple, easily understood, and non-cluttered. Usually with no or minimal graphics also.


OmniOutliner Pro does a great job of doing this, for simple, easily organized, and fast websites

Here's an idea.

(The default image for that video really needs to be changed.  Cheesy)
...

+1

It's clear, simple, and to the point.

Definitely not a fan of sgornick's proposed design. Far too much text, far too cluttered.

I just wanted to repeat one more time thing that has been said: in my opinion also, default video preview is really not working well for site image.

I show people website and their first question is like "who's that woman?"

Variance is a bitch!

Aren't bitcoins pegged by Asians though?

Check out bitcoinity.org and Ripple.

Maybe one with the Bitcoin logo in it? That would be the most logical choice.

How about using the bitcoin logo that use binary as the official logo?



You can thanks skull88 for the logo.

Did anybody bribe skull88 already to release this on public domain ?
If not, we could make a bounty  - i think it's worth it.

IMHO, the top should have 2 download links: one that is the "default" client for the user's platform (identified by User-Agent), and the other linking to a table of alternative clients/platforms.

For example, on the main page:
[  Download wxBitcoin for Windows  ]  |  (Download other clients/platforms)

And on the second page:

Client    | Win | Mac | Ubuntu | Deb | Fedora | RH
----------------------------------------------------
wxBitcoin | D/l | D/l |  D/l   | D/l |  D/l   | D/l
BitcoinD  | D/l | D/l |  D/l   | D/l |  D/l   | D/l
Spesmilo  | D/l | D/l |  D/l   | D/l |  D/l   | D/l
...

What is spesmilo?  At some point I thought it was the esperantist version of bitcoin, but this word doesn't seem to mean anything in esperanto.

It's nothing to do with Esperanto (except there's a translation of it).

It's just a random (Esperanto) name picked for another Bitcoin client,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spesmilo
The Spesmilo was supposed to be a world currency to go with the world language of Esperanto :p Thought that the name had similar connotations with Bitcoin.

BTW, I somewhat agree with luke-jr now I think about it. There's only one bitcoin.org, and having only 1 official version is exclusionary to all other competing implementations. In the same way email.org wouldn't only be about one program called Email but have links to a bunch of different versions.

I really like what seems to be the majority opinion, Dobry Den's layout with skull88's coin at the top.  The download links should be visible within the top 768 pixels of the page as most people hate searching for links.  And yes, change the preview image for the video.  Perhaps the node map at 0:42?

I also like sgornick's layout, but I think it should be used on a site targeted to merchants.  The column headings could be "Advantages for you" and "Advantages for your customers."

I believe in Bitcoin but I can't contribute to this project with reviewing or writing code, because I simply can't program.  Wink
So I simply do what I can, and that is spreading the word, and because a picture says more than thousand words, I made some graphics.

I prefer the official logo over skull88's logo.

Re: the logo. Could we please be careful with the Thai Baht B thing? The logo is really cool but it is for a currency that has existed for much longer than BitCoin ...

I wouldn’t say that it looks like ฿. Also, the official logo has the same kind of B (favicon of bitcoin.org and the client’s logo). I like skull88’s logo better.

Who's that woman:
  Anna Lee

I don't know nuthin 'bout changing video default images.

If anybody does, I'd be happy to replace or tweak the link to the video at bitcoin.org.


How often do you get the chance to work on a potentially world-changing project?

I think you just need to 'shop a better looking one into the photo and reedit the video to include it.

I think the photo of Anna and the Yap stone is just fine.  It has some surprise effect and has the merit of getting out of tech context.
