I do prefer it to the corrent one. A few notes:

I have the impression that there's a slight mismatch in the shades of
the top image and the hyperlink style. They might look better if they
were exactly the same or clearly different.

Consider adding a different color. One idea could be a warm shade of
yellow. You could use a stronger version for the navigation buttons and
a lighter one for the boxes, in place of the current grey. Consider
either displaying a window length menubar or a separator right above the

The navigation box to the right should go above the search one, not below.

The "Get Boost" font is a bit too large. Consider moving it to the right
hand side of the navigation menu bar (where Motif's help button used to be).

See? Some of these *are* suggestions ;-)
