When I logged onto the forum, I thought my graphics card had failed!

Franky it is hideous. The colour scheme actually does hurt my eyes!

The main site looks better, but the endless scrolling is not so great.

Luckily I'm an a Mac and the scrolling is pretty swift using the trackpad..

Cosmic Fail in my view :(

Not crazy about the tan but it is much much better than it was.

Credit where credit is due.

I was irritated at the beginning but I like the new logo, as it clearly shows arrangement and clip view.
Website looks more modern, the windows 8 kind a tiles are pritty big, but give text some space, very good to navigate and read on my iPad 3 and ok to read and navigate on my mobile (Google Nexus S).

I'm wondering about the negative comments, Ableton is on a good way in my opinion.
Colours are a question of taste, for me it looks cool and a bit more for girls and women.
Before it looked more cold and male.

The only thing I don't like is the start picture with push. I'd like to have the page behind as my start page.
That would save me time. I'll bookmark this page behind the actual startpage with push shown very big.

The new design makes no sense. It was so much cleaner and simpler before. This is confusing.

Oh, I didn't think of that :?

If that's the reasoning behind it, then it's brilliant :P
