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 
   like to see a button on the front page that actually starts the 
   and a small link below it, "More download options."

2. On our Downloads page, we use absolutely atrocious buttons: these 
   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 
   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 
   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.



Thanks a lot for your feedback. Much appreciated.
