Or even better, the main column should be short moduls of text giving "newbies"
and other short explanation about typo3.org, wiki, news, support and so on
(with links). For me as a user for some years, the startpage hasn't any big
value. I get all the news via RSS, and my bookmarks are direct to extensions
I think http://plone.org/ (Plone) has an interesting approach on the frontpage.
We shouldn't copy, but maybe some ideas.

> As far as I can see the only bad thing with the current state of the
> sections is, that they are hard to find if you don't know they exist.
> So what about having the different sections as simple items of the
> typo3.org main menu linking to the subdomains?
> It would be enough to see a "Wiki", "News", "Support" link when you
> just entered typo3.org. The selectbox at the upper right corner simply
> doesn't get noticed, since you can't see what's in it (and it's still
> missing some sections)
> Maybe a "menu of these pages with abstract" together with some nicely
> designed icons could be helpful. This could be much better than the
> current list of news items, that IMHO should be moved to a smaller
> right column while the main column could contain such a teaser menu of
> "external URLs" linking to the subdomains.
> If we agree on this I would be glad to setup this new home page, maybe
> with some help from people who are better icon designers.
