While searching for some open source software today, i just bumbed onto a “new”: Streamed and clearer version of sourceforge.net website. It’s quiet nice i may say, when u enter the page, u don’t have a lot of stuff, like the normal one.
It’s a Google like home page i may say, not many actions, but the essentials that are needed is visible. Let’s say is more web 2.0
The bright orange is a bit too flashy and takes up too much of the screen i may think. It could have been a bit smaller.
For those who don’t what sourceforge.net is about here is a part of the description from wikipedia:
SourceForge.net is a source code repository and acts as a centralized location for software developers to control and manage open source software development. SourceForge.net is operated by Sourceforge, Inc. (formerly VA Software) and runs a version of the SourceForge software, forked from the last open-source version available. A large number of open source projects are hosted on the site (it had reached 178,832 projects and 1,861,990 registered users as of 2008, although it does contain many dormant or single-user projects).
SourceForge.net has offered free access to hosting and tools for developers of free software / open source software for several years, and has become well-known within such development communities for these services.
