I think that adding a few more specific forums would be a good idea. But I think the choice of forums and their names is really important for a forums success, so I think this shouldn't be done on a whim however...
I was thinking something like this for the software section:
- Other Programming languages, NXC, RobotC, leJOS and so on (in a single forum)
- General software, stuff like RicEdit, MLCad, downloading firmware, BCC and such, stuff not directly related to programming...
I think we should keep the amount of forums visible on the front page to maximum 10 or something like that so all forums can be seen without too much scrolling. I suspect too many forums visible at once would just confuse new users. If it really is necessary with so many forums, perhaps making some of them sub-forums would be an idea?

I agree that we should wait a little, but this forum have been up for a week and there is already 76 members and ~260 posts (40 topics). It is not going to take long... (And remember, once you change the forums you will need to sort all the existing topics, the more you wait, the more topics there will be to sort ; ) )
