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.

So which Bittorrent client do we link to?

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.

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...?
