Hey Grant,

Thanks for your opinion. I find myself in agreement with you and the
blog. The MTM site was meant to be informative, where interested people
could learn (in simple English) what all this Linux stuff was about.

But as the article says, most people don't care about that, they just
want to know how to use their computer better.

So I'm thinking I can change the way the site reads. We could still
include informative information, but maybe for those who really want to
know. I'm working on it... well I'm supposed to be working on it.

As for the layout, yeah the site needs a lot of work. Unfortunately I'm
neither an expert programmer nor a graphic designer, but I try. The
offer is open to anyone to help out ;)
