Thanks a lot Luca for tackling this !

A few observations/proposals:
- wondering if the subtiltle "The Geospatial Data Translation Tools" shouldn't be replaced 
by the "The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library and translation tools" to get both the 
menaing of the acronym and the practical uses
- perhaps replace "Welcome" by "Introduction" ?
- in this paragraph, I would remove bold characters starting with "As a library"
- I would replace "As a library, it is" by "It is writen in C++ and"
- In the raster format list, I would add OGC WCS/WMS/WMTS.. And int the vector format list 
- I would replace in the vector formats "ESRI Personal Geodatabase" by "ESRI 
FileGeodatabase" since the latter is probably now more common than the former.
- in the language list, Ruby and VB6 should be removed (no longer supported)
- in "features", in the first bullet, I'd :
  * add after "image warping": "reprojection"
  * add after "merging": "tiling, DEM-related utilities (hillshading, slope, hypsometric 
- in the "Support for large files" bullet, I'd append "- with modest memory requirements"
- in "where it is used", I'd removed OpenEV since the project is kind of dead now. In the "also 
utilized by" list, perhaps add gvSIG (to have at least one non C++ application)
- I don't know if the white backgound of the GDAL logo is intentional. If not, you could start 
from the original SVG drawing that has not this background :
