What do people think about the download experience of LibreOffice?
How can it be improved? Any
particular idea besides a graphical redesign itself?

I think there should be a clear distinction between early-adopters and
rock-solid LO releases.
Lots of users just download the more recent version (e.g. 4.1.0) and
then claim it's buggy: they simply don't know why there are two
versions. It would be really useful have a tooltip/little
description/symbol who says something like:

( ✓)  LibreOffice  4.0.6 is our conservative and rock-solid version
for professional users.

(!) LibreOffice 4.1.3 is our latest, feature rich version for
early-adopters and casual users.

Well I don't agree on the order of the download nor on what it
suggests, but I like the wording. The 4.1.3 (esp. when it comes to the
x.x.3) is already very stable and production ready. The 4.0.6 is the
one at the end of the support line so we don't want to put that first.
