tbh: the only thing I've actually used the site for is soundcard info. The 
idea of a facelift sounds good, this might prompt me to look at the rest of 
the site. The front page is rather 'dry' and looks like it's only intended 
for developers/experienced users - I'm also not keen on that pale grey-green 
colour, but that's a personal thing. A more informative & extensive contents 
listing here would probably encourage me to use more of the site.

I don't know if 'rating' is quite the thing. But info on things like 
soundfont support, whether the external MIDI port is known to work or not 
would be useful info.

and while we're at it:
and these also may be useful:

As you've asked, I'll go look at the site a bit more deeply.
That said, It's a useful resource, thanks for even bothering :-)
