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.
