I'd say calling it a 'terrible website' is somewhat subjective. I'm not a fan 
of single-page websites or websites
which won't load with a plethora of other javascript libraries. Also, as the 
person, who 'nominated' systemd for
having a 'terrible website' said in the thread you linked - "I like this kind

The current systemd homepage is pretty simple, without any additional 
distracting eye-candy, and it's getting the
job done really well, for a 'fancy' man page (and as a bonus, it works in 

Also, there is a second systemd website, again pretty bare-bones, generated

That said, this is just my personal opinion, not in any way affiliated with the 
systemd organization. Also, I'm
not trying to disrespect your offer, just pointing out different aspects of the 
current website :-).
