It's too busy Scott. I look at that and genuinely feel overwhelmed. And
any potential Ubuntu Studio users will feel the same.
There is simply too much information and too much text.
Heck, I don't even like the layout!
It has to be made and kept simple and only the basics and necessary of
information be made available on the front page.

Also of note, obviously this is your decision, but does Ubuntu Studio
really have to go down the whole Facebook/Twitter icon thing?
And if you do, I'd recommend those kind of icons be kept smaller than
what you have displayed here and moved down to the bottom somewhere.
