I don't like it. A more lighter and visual explanation could be done
with a bootstrap or Material Design Lite theme included in the Fossil
site if the current front page seems to textish, without going into the
slideshow explanation, which I find distracting and not responsible in
variety of screens. For example, gitea[1] and Gogs[2] both have a light
text front page without going into the slideshow route (which I think is
making more harm that good presenting ideas to the general public and
particularly in conferences, courses and the educational sector)
