Subject Re: [DISCUSS] New website content

Thanks.

The design is very intuitive and takes the users right where they want to.

But there are some repetitive elements(like getting started and download links), which we
can improve upon. I have asked my team to have the header fixed so its available all the time.

Tomasz, your inputs on this?
