I wasn't sure either, but it's worth noting that the libreoffice

different URL) doesn't need javascript or jquery for OS detection.
Even with noscript, it correctly shows me a download button for Linux

Personally, I'd be fine with Pat's suggestion of just having links
at the top, but server-side user agent detection is a nice touch.

It seems everyone is a fan of this, so I'll spend some time finding an
optimal way to do this.  I'll start with styling the base page, and then
progressively enhance it with OS detection.

On the Downloads page, the page content is responsive but the image
at the top forces the page to 900px wide. Maybe that's what Andrew
is talking about? The rest of the site is very responsive.

It's actually the MD5 hashes in the table that are causing the page to be
wider.  I'm going to modify that shortly to hopefully rectify it.

One other issue: the webfonts in the toolbar at the top look awful
in either Firefox or Chromium on Debian unstable. Debian seems to
have a problem in general with rendering webfonts -- I've seen it
on other pages that use them. Screenshot:

Thanks again for catching this.  We're working on it (as you know...) :)
