 == What is the NetBeans Platform?
 
-The NetBeans Platform is a broad Java framework on which you can base large desktop applications. NetBeans IDE itself is link:http://platform.netbeans.org/screenshots.html[+one of the hundreds of applications+] based on the NetBeans Platform. The NetBeans Platform contains APIs that simplify the handling of windows, actions, files, and many other things typical in applications.
+The NetBeans Platform is a broad Java framework on which you can base large desktop applications. 
 
-Each distinct feature in a NetBeans Platform application can be provided by a distinct NetBeans module, which is comparable to a plugin. A NetBeans module is a group of Java classes that provides an application with a specific feature.
+See link:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NetBeans-based_software[a list of NetBeans based applications]
+that have been built on top of the NetBeans platform.
 
-You can also create new modules for NetBeans IDE itself. For example, you can write modules that make your favorite cutting-edge technologies available to users of NetBeans IDE. Alternatively, you might create a module to provide an additional editor feature.
+NOTE: The fact that we use the NetBeans Platform to build the NetBeans IDE does not mean that
+you can only build IDEs with it. People design planes, manage airports and harbors, manage satellite
+earth stations, build passenger information systems, design radar systems, play music, paint complex
+graphs and more using the NetBeans Platform.
 
-== Getting Started
+The NetBeans Platform contains APIs that simplify the handling of windows,
+actions, files, user selection and many other things typical in desktop based
+applications. This greatly makes things easier for you, reducing the
+time-to-market required to create great applications.

-=== Applications Built on the NetBeans Platform
 
-==== Applications
+=== Extending the NetBeans Platform
+
+The NetBeans module system is very extensible, meaning that you can add
+features through different mechanisms: the Java's service provider interface, the
+Lookup API (that also works with the service provider interface) and the
+concept of "layers" (that works in a similar way to the Windows registry).
+
+* For an introduction to the Java Service Provider mechanism see Oracle's link:https://www.oracle.com/technical-resources/articles/javase/extensible.html[+Creating Extensible Applications With the Java Platform+]
+* For an introduction to the NetBeans Lookup API see link:http://netbeans.dzone.com/articles/netbeans-lookups-explained[+NetBeans Lookups Explained!+].
+* You may also find link:http://netbeans.dzone.com/news/netbeans-extension-points[+How Do NetBeans Extension Points Work?+] of interest.
+* The link:https://dzone.com/articles/how-create-pluggable-photo-alb[+How to Create a Pluggable Photo Album in Java+] 
+* The link:http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/javadoc/layers.html[+Description of Layer Registrations in NetBeans APIs+] explains how each module
+in NetBeans registers files, documents, classes and more in a global registry that you can query.
+
+=== Using Maven to build applications
+
+You can use Maven and the NetBeans Platform to build great applications. Here're some
+tutorials to get you started:
