(Sorry for necroposting; I've been on vacation)

Even if Java has more developers than Perl, that's no reason to have a 
worse web page. I fully agree that the openjdk home page is bad. It 
still confuses *me*, and I've been using it regularly for years. I can't 
even begin to imagine what it must look like to people seeing it the 
first time.

Since there is no formalized process for fixing the web page, Sergey, 
why don't you and your web designer friend create a mockup or 
demonstration of an alternative design? Then we'll have a concrete 
example to reason about.
