Yes, I was tinkering with the links. launchpad link? Not 100% which  
link you mean? Can you edit this link to point to where it should go?

I think we can switch the site over very soon ... there is still  
tonnes more things we can do to make it better, but we've on the whole  
got more on the new site than the old site. The only thing I still  
want to do before re-launch is create a better Documentation home page.

Yes, the Download link is a good idea.  I only removed the link  
because I didn't want to write text for that page as I wasn't really  
sure what to put there. Writing top level marketing-ish oriented text  
isn't always the most fun :(

I also put the "Evalute" page as the default page for About Grok, but  
I'm not quite sure if this is better or worse?

Also note that for the Titles of many pages on the site I've been  
trying to leave the word "Grok" out of them wherever possible. The  
word Grok is already implicitly stated since it is the Grok web site.  
If we put Grok in every title the navigation and listing pages will  
read as, "Grok blah Grok blah blah Grok Grok blah Grok blah Grok".  
Which is a lot of the word Grok.
