Neon's current website


I wanted to download KDE Neon stable and accessed neon.kde.org, but in the main page the only call-to-action refers to a page talking about how to upgrade for existing users. It says: "Now rebased on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, upgrade now."

The download link is "hidden" in the header. I believe the website should have a very visible button in the center of the page (where there's the image with the lake) with a link for the download page. That way visitors could easily be redirected to download Neon instead of searching for the download link in the header.

Maybe it could have two big buttons with attention grabbing colors. One with "Download Now" and another with "Upgrade from 18.04", so it would be like:

                             Introducing KDE neon

The latest and greatest of KDE community software packaged on a rock-solid base.

                    [Download Now] or [Upgrade from 18.04]

Why I think this is important: 

Usually websites want users to perform an expected action. A way to make that happen is by what is called a "call-to-action". That can be a buttton or a link that leads the user to perform the desired action. It's a simple but effective way to make more people be compelled to give KDE Neon a try.

Add visible download button to Neon Website

Most users probably access the Neon website to download it, so it's important to make the download button as easy to access as possible. I made the bug report for this a while ago and there I explain my personal experience with the website and the reasons why it's better to have the button easily accessible.

Hopefully, this makes the website easier to navigate.
