Check out the Cinnamon web site.
It’s not so bad, as web sites go, in terms of appearance. Nice width, good text/background contrast. They’re probably using WordPress in the backend. That transition between screenshots (if that’s what they are) effect is really nice, I like it.
Notice they had a release recently – up to version 1.4 now, it seems, and 1.3.1 was … well, I don’t know how long ago, because the news items aren’t dated, which does seem like a serious omission, but at least I can click the links to get the full story with date: 1.4 was released 14/3/2012 and 1.3.1 was 20/2/2012, less than a month earlier. Ok, I can live with that. Hmm, fast release schedule! Usually a sign of a project in its infancy: enthusiastic developers, and plenty of low-hanging fruit in terms of bugs to fix and features to add. Which makes the next observation even more puzzling.
No – mention – anywhere – of – what – the – heck – it – is.
How exactly do you manage to put together a website with flashy screenshots and monthly news items and still neglect this most basic, this most essential of details? I can only assume that the webmaster is some form of greater ape. Possibly an orangutang. Don’t get me wrong, I like orangutangs, they have an odd graceful sobriety about them, and you can train them to wash clothes and (apparently) bang up a quick website, but they just don’t have the intelligence of a real human.
So please, Cinnamon, ditch the ape, get a human, and put an “about” page on your crappy website.
