It *is* looking pretty damn good, isn’t it?

Of course, I have a couple of typo-level suggestions;

a) on the projects page, in the ‘Scratch’ section I’d like to add something like
“The original Squeak based version is pre-installed on Raspberry Pi (link to www.raspberrypi.org) and the current MIT supported version is implemented in Flash (add boo-hiss sound effects)”

b) the link for ‘STEPS and Frank’ pints to a very interesting list of publications but not to something that would particularly explain STEPS or Frank. Somebody must be able to provide a more appropriate link - and the general list should be pointed to from some other place.

c) the VMMaker section points to a rather dated page on the swiki. Somebody oughta whack the author on the head to get him to update it.

d) the Croquet entry points to openCobalt - perhaps a couple of words explaining the name change would make it less surprising? And if anyone involved is reading, that site could do with an update or two to make it look less cob-webby

e) on the downloads page we could do with an ‘elevator’ explanation of what we mean by ‘Spur’ and ‘non-Spur’, as well as ‘Classic VM’ vs ‘Cog VM’.

f) still on downloads, the linux stuff should probably split between x86 (where you need the 32bit libraries for 64bit releases of linux) and ARM/RaspberryPi where you don’t. And we need to mention that on ARM, the Cog VM’s are only for Spur images. And, dammit, font-awesome still doesn’t have a RaspberryPi icon to use. I +1’d it on their github thingy.
