Here's my suggestion on a new layout for the mainpage. This will involve a "table of contents" for each category. I think that's unavoidable now, and necessary. Most article links ''will not'' be on the main page, but will be in the content page of each of the sections.

Topher (14 Jan 09):I took the liberty of spreading out each section of the Helpdesk page. Here's my rationale: We need to be able to reach all articles pretty quickly - so it does make sense to have most or all articles directly linked from the main page (for now). However before, those links were all clustered together. Now they're laid out in groups and sub-groups vertically. This isn't "efficient" as far as making the page as compact as possible, but compactness doesn't matter as much as clarity of organization. This layout takes full advantage of the "Table of Contents" box at the top of the page, which provides hotlinks to each section.
