I'm positive to pointing to commercial stuff from the site and wiki, that's
gonna benefit the overall Lucene community.

But why front page, and why as an "ad" with an image? A more neutral, still 
prominent placement would be on a new "Commercial" page linked to from the left
menu. Although it's an excellent ref.guide, it clearly is a marketing instrument 
for Lucid, one out of a growing number of competitors in this field. There will
be a growing need for more references to other commercial distros, plugins, 
documentation and more, and such stuff should have a vendor neutral home.

+1 for a text link from a new "Commercial" page.

-1 for image ad on front page -- (unless the ad is paid and tagged as an ad)
