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

First try:

Not really what I had in mind when you mentioned you planes, rather some
small table that takes the place of the current download links, and a
short, one paragraph explanation below each of them.

And can we use that Windows logo without any additional requirements?
That's actually one of the reasons why there is not "click icon to get
to the windows downloads" button on the downloads pages yet.

3. Some users will not mind using a torrent client if it helps the
community. We provide the second link for them, on the same level as the
first link, with an article immediately following to explain what it is,
why it helps, and how to do it safely. Also explaining the benefits of
torrenting in-general shows them, it's not just a one-time "bundleware"
thing: it's a valuable tool for everyone.

So which Bittorrent client do we link to?

Note that I have removed all the "known to work with" information, because
the only known non-working versions are for Windows RT and Windows packages
so old it's a crime against the user to be using them in the first place.

I did this based on these assumptions:

I added this list because questions like "does it run on
98/ME/Vista/2000/NT4/... - and it did contain all known working versions
because a plain "more recent than XP" is apparently not enough by itself.

I have thus replaced the list with an additional sentence at the end of the
intro text on the page that says "Works with all known versions of Windows
except Windows RT".

There still seem to be a considerable number of people running XP SP2.
Not being able to run GIMP might be a wakeup call for some of them, yet
this whole change is done to avoid a different wakeup call, so maybe you
might want to reconsider...?
