second website

This is the recommend location for downloading, and for Windows users
we don't show MD5 or stuff. The download link is quite obvious.

It _could_ be a button indeed. Something to work on in due time.

What has to be considered here is the overwhelming number of
button-look-a-likes that lead users to malicious copies of the software
they want - we should not contribute to this automatic behavior, if is
one of the reasons why we left SF, after all.

I'd suggest that we make 'Download GIMP 2.8.10' a link to the HTTP url
as well, and keep the rest as-is.

The organization of the page seems a bit dated or biased.  The users most
likely to actually want to download are Windows and MacOS X users (since
Linux users are more likely to use their distribution's packaging system),
and those links are hidden behind a "Show other downloads" link.  That makes
it non-obvious for those users.
