An interface to FreeBSD that says, "Professional solutions for 
enterprise IT management and infrastructure" rather than "Cool 
open-source software project." You know, links like "Products, 
Solutions, Partners" rather than "Bugs, Download, Community."

A counter example might be "". Big headline today: "GNOME Photo 
Printer: A nifty little app" To me, it screams, "Geek site." I think the 
point is to create something that people who don't necessarily like 
nifty apps and neat features would be persuaded by.

That's just my take on it. Hope I'm not stepping on any toes -- I think is a great idea.
