Re: [Gimp-developer] wtf with the download?

Yes, and to also force Bittorrent knowledge upon users.

If not, maybe we should offer up the direct download executable first
to avoid confusion (and ranting and name-calling, apparently, lol).

The choice to endure the occasional complaint is deliberate.

Generally I find most sites make dedicated button-looking graphics for
various kinds of downloads.

Unfortunately, these graphics have been burnt quite a lot by ads linking
to malicious downloads, not using them so far is also a deliberate choice.

I would be happy to make some up to disambiguate the downloading links, for
our less torrent-savvy users.


People who do not read beyond the first line on our downloads page might
not be happy with using GIMP, we might be doing them a favor with the
current setup.
