"What help do you think you would need to be able to move/move your institution to Linux?"

+1 for asking institutions (especially in education). KDE has some great educational apps (GCompris, KStars, KGeography...) and there are even special distributions designed for schools (e.g. the "lernstick", a german project that is pretty much Debian with tons of edu-apps added in).

A few sample questions (not refined):

I recommend that we conduct research asking receptive institutions--such as primary schools, universities, nonprofits, and small-to-medium-sized businesses--what the barriers are to adopting KDE Plasma and apps. Most of these institutions use Windows but are dissatisfied with the headaches and cost. Also, they typically already have an IT staff (if even a small one) to ease the transition and provide rudimentary user support.

Not even necessarily "Downloads", but more something like "Get KDE Software" that does include download links, and links to distros and Neon and the Slimbook people's store, etc. That way we can centralize our own downloads here and also provide an obvious place to add more partner links, as more emerge.

Here's another really important thing I forgot: "how to get KDE software!"

A major problem right now is that people see our stuff, but it's really hard to figure out how to get it. We should make it super super super obvious how to get KDE software, both in standalone form, from Linux distros, and also in pre-installed form on purchaseable hardware. This should probably be a centralized page, with links leading to it from all the individual pages for our varies products.

@laysrodrigues based on your recent email to the Akademy Team this is all based on the assumption that you would be able to borrow a printer to do this on? Sounds like confirming the availability of a printer might be worth doing before starting this?

I suggest to wait for the actual switch of the main site and see what Haris has done with the WP, as he consolidated a lot of what has been given and then start to change or finetune that and NOT all change it at once again.
Just my 2 cents.

Projects/Software

I would create some sort of separation here between Plasma and Kubuntu. I'm getting ready to swap from Plasma to Kubuntu for a more stable experience. (less updates - less breakage - I run both now)

Some people might want the more cutting edge but I need stability on this machine.

Another link to have is to a page with international websites (currently it is https://www.kde.org/support/international.php).

Some of those aren't active any more. Currently, we plan to recover kde.ru to serve as a landing page for the Russian-speaking community.

IMHO it's of critical importance that the landing page have a link to the page where new contributors can get involved, which right now is https://community.kde.org/Get_Involved

This is of great importance to T7116: Streamlined onboarding of new contributors. We want to make it as easy as possible for people to find that page. Ideally it should be visible without having to click on or mouse over anything first.
