Thanks Aaron for the hard work.   The new front page gives a much clear
image on Cassandra.

However I would also like to present some of my thoughts - based on my own
learning path:

1) The first part should present a clear image on what Cassandra is, and
what's inside Cassandra - thus we'd better include the Data Model section in
it - people will easily get to know what's the difference between Cassandra
and other key based databases like HBase, MangoDB etc., therefore make wise

2) The second part could give a glance at how to make Cassandra running on a
small to moderate level application - aka the a small development platform.
  Including how to create a cluster and also running on Windows / Amazon
EC2. Here StorageConfiguration is not so important because the target of
this section is to help users build up a usable Cassandra Cluster.

3) The third part can help the administrators of large scale application,
and also introducing management strategies like storage configuration and
also other monitoring, node operations techniques.

The rest parts are perfect. I hope we can match the list with a typical
users' learning experience, so that for users at different level they can
focus on their own section. It's just my own idea - and it might different
from others' experiences, hopefully it could help. Thanks again for the
great work.
