Yea, there are so many issues and problems. Funny, that they are working on it so long (counting from time when they announced future new platform).
I on my own spend some time of hard work with http://zschocianow.pl/ (and currently some large extra modules, not yet publicly available), basing on graphic project (as I just can't imagine some things, I am not graphic). Moreover - the previous site was Joomla 1.5 (now it's latest WordPress) and about 450+ post to even rewrite to make them look aesthetic (the website administrator is just so ignorant, why they paying him so much for nothing...). It take me most time on content, website is simple layout tested on old machines and browsers and I think it's fine. Fast, elegant, simple.
You should take it as example how to create website that will satisfied many people.
And the most important - read every single character (even dot and space) of given feedback. You asked for it, we did it seriously, use it for make professional service.
