Mm - I have to agree on this one unfortunately! I have been at a fair 
number of wikis, and they always seem confusing to me - and ugly. 
Despite the good effort my personal impression is th the original site 
is much more intuitive. But I guess that is just a matter of changing 
the lay out of the site since the database is in place. My advice would 
be: tune down the wiki aspect. Make the software list right there in 
your face when you arrive.

Just my 0.2 kr.
