It does say "via BitTorrent" on the teal link.
There's a good case to be made for just listing the torrent file as a
smaller text-link after the orange download button, though. If I had my
way, we would not be listing a torrent at all for windows users, as there
are far too many things that can go wrong for that platform. However, I'm
trying to present a solution that everyone is okay with. Esp the developers
who will, in the end, be applying these patches to the site. Most of the
devs have been supportive of keeping the torrent link (at least as)
prominent as the direct download link.
