Not so much what has been dropped, but what has been added :) If I
compare http://openbossa.andrecunha.com/HOME.jpg and
http://openbossa.andrecunha.com/HOMEB.jpg side by side I can see
couple of things.

- The right hand side tabbed box is really good and it's missing from
the HOMEB mockup. Again, if maemo.org design should be more for
smaller screens, then then box design itself could be improved to be
more finger friendly.

- Get info, get help and get involved boxes bring nice balance to the
front page that's missing in the HOMEB. Hot & fresh boxes could be
placed in to the tabbed box just as well.

- To me, having the "about maemo.org" text in the front makes lot of
sense. It's like having good manners, introducing yourself first is
where every (even online) relationship starts from.

- The people introduction thing would fit again much more nicely into
the tabbed solution. And the banners could be somewhere else, maybe in
the very bottom of the page.
