The top page is all threads with new comments today. Removing all the sub-forums (sub-fora?) makes it harder to see topical things without paging through screen after screen of new entries.
We understand where you are coming from. However, if you had looked at all the threads you will see that there were many threads on accessories and content and troubleshooting in the main thread... so you were missing those.
We can hope that people will start to use the prefixes for device specific topics. You can filter to show only threads with no prefix which are more likely to apply to all devices and be threads on accessories or content or the like.
