Hi Charles, all,

(please answer these thread on the website list).

I hope reply-all is appropriate..?

The title pretty much says it all. What do people think about the
download experience of LibreOffice? How can it be improved?

Thanks for asking the question, there are two main things that irk me about it:

1. There is a "download now" button on the homepage. It lies. It currently is a go-to-some-other-page-then-click-Download-again button. I'd much rather like to see a button on the front page that actually starts the download,
  and a small link below it, "More download options."

2. On our Downloads page, we use absolutely atrocious buttons: these buttons look like they only have one click zone, part of them feel like they only have one click zone (background lights up), yet actually these things have
  three click zones (Main Installer, Torrent, & Info).
It is easy to see that this leads to people clicking on the button, only to see nothing happening, because they clicked outside of one the three
  small zones.
  So, in conclusion, the whole button should be inside an <a> (i.e., a
hyperlink) element, and Torrent and Info should be placed somewhere otside
  the big green button.

As an additional suggestion, there could be a bit more space around the bottom of the links on the download page. Also, it would be cool if the buttons on the
homepage looked the same as those on the Download page.
