You are probably expecting something like

I doubt he would be happy just downloading a tar ball, which is what
happens when I access that url and click the main button.

Under the main button there is a link "Other Systems and Languages". In 
any case, if you were to access that URL from a Windows box, you would 
find that the main button offered the Windows version (British English); 
the US website offers the Windows version (US English).

I don't recall George Dell ever saying that he is using MS Windows. Do
you assume that he is using it since he is having problems installing
