My mobile data got capped this month because I exceeded my monthly data-bundle. That means I get throttled down in speed.
With a non-4G connection it's practically impossible to open the elivecd.org page ..... it's way too heavy and takes ages to even become usable. Really bad.
I'd advise having a simple (but pretty) static HTML entry/welcome page that allows for choosing where to go i.e direct links to:
- The current opening page (which I call "the book" due to it's massive TLDR content)
- The downloads page (for those in a hurry) to try
- the forums (here)
- and of course the donate/support section.
That simple page will also allow for quick changes and announcements when needed w.o risking the structure of the whole website.
