Layout preference?

Was the layout change simply for aesthetic reasons? If not, what reasons were there? Personally I much preferred the old site design, but mayhap thats just me and I'm alone in the opinion.

    This week Penny Arcade is turning seven years old. We decided to celebrate by alienating our readers with a new website design. I’m kidding, we’ve actually had this design in the works for just over a year. Obviously we’re big fans of the look, I especially like how PAX, Child’s Play and PA all have a unified design now. Penny Arcade has something like four million readers though, and there’s no way we could ever come up with a site that would appeal to everyone. If you don’t like it I apologize, hopefully it will grow on you and you’ll be sending me hate mail in another three years when we change it.

    Along with the slick new visuals the guts of the site also got a huge upgrade. Penny Arcade right now represents one of the largest implementations of "rails" on the intertron. I went and looked at a website about rails and then I got a headache. From what I gathered it’s either some kind of cutting edge programming language, or a way to liquefy a man’s brain inside his skull. I'm told that it means the site looks better and loads faster regardless of whatever hippy web browser you decide to use. Fuck M$!

    For me, it feels like I was given the keys to a brand new hot rod. I’d like to thank Erik (Alphamonkey), Sean (Chittenden) from and Kiko for doing such an incredible job on the new site.

    The new site has a much much better code generator thingie behind it. The new theme is just flashy, image-intensive icing on the cake.
