I say retro/simple. I don't like new/fancy as such layouts tend to get in
the way of usability.

Having looked at all three, I rather like the current, but think it would
look better without the busy graphic below the black CLASSICCMP line. Of
the other two, I prefer the 'retro' one, but would recommend white instead
of pale green.

One thing I like is a page that simple and looks/works good under both
Netscape/Mozilla/IE, and Lynx. For example my DEC Emulation site works just
fine under Netscape/Mozilla/IE, and works pretty good under Lynx.
http://www.aracnet.com/~healyzh/decemu.html It's also a very low bandwidth
site in that it is pretty basic HTML, with almost no graphics.
