I favour changing this to a link to get the installer exe directly. I
say this from my own perspective: If I am downloading some free software
application for Windows, I'd prefer a direct link to the installer by
default rather than getting the torrent file. It is just convenient.

I also favour a link directly to an exe. I don't use BitTorrent. I don't have any machine with a BitTorrent client on it. When I'm downloading Open Source programs from the net I look for the direct download. If all I see is a file sharing link (BitTorrent, ed2k, or similar), I will go else where to download the program or I will look for a different program to do the same job as the one I was after.
