Sorry, but htis new color scheme really hurts. I rather preferred the old colors, because the page looked more like the concept behind Freshmeat: clean, neat, easy to navigate. And for those out there who don't know what C# (or "C Sharp") is I provide some info:
C# is a programming language invented by Micro$oft. It's a migration between C/C++ and Java. Generally I'd say it's quite a good idea, if it wasn't made by Micro$oft. Many people say it's only been made to provide a counterpart to Java with the use Windows as platform instead of a platform-independend code. Also it still has quite a lot of bugs. For example the way it handles Objects and Threads: If a new object/thread is created and there isn't enough memory it forgets either one of the older or the new object/thread. I don't mean delete but really forgets! The forgotten object/thread simply goes to nirvana without notification to the system or user.
I don't want to say it's a bad idea to use C# but I'd rather wait until it is far more reliable. Just because the code behind Freshmeat is more than one year old it doesn't mean it's outdated. As long as it's reliable and able to handle all requests I would prefer to stick to the old code and wait a bit longer 'till C# is ready to use for the masses. Also, if you really decide to use Micro$oft's insecure "Passport" technology I'll have to think twice to keep on using your site as a registered user.
Have a lot of Fun!
