    It's very pretty, and I'd live to see wikipedia look like this. I particularly like the editing features.

    But it's very image heavy. Lets put aside all the articles that have ugly images tat aren't suitable for this design and instead think about bandwidth: every few months wikipedia needs to raise more money, and I'm sure some cost is shipping all the static resources out to people.

    So, to keep costs down, it seems like wikipedia would want a minimal amount of extraneous images on their most visited page - their home page.
