No - it just defaults to rpm when no decision could be made.

I did not explain well.

does, and the Opera one too.

Then you said:
my solution (and the one from
Stefan before) already does that from the very beginning.

And I wanted to say:

select the distro.

It does the same as the Opera page does: Tries to guess the right
thing, but still offers the user to choose.
Opera page wrongly detects ubuntu deb (I'm on Mandriva and thus rpm),
but lets me choose mandriva with the controls. The same with the

I surely don't want a popup-style prompt to force the user click a
dialog away or something.

Me neither. btw I don't think Carlos meant pop-up when he said "prompt".

Now, what about this:

If system detection successes, the system prompts a listbox with:
- Windows
- Mac x86
- Mac PPC
- Linux x86 rpm
- Linux x86 deb
- Linux 64 bit rpm
- Linux 64 bit deb

And the right listbox is pre-selected.

Else, if Linux is detected but not the distro, the system prompts a
different listbox and a link.

The listbox is:
- Debian
- Fedora
- Mandriva
- Mint
- PCLinuxOS
- Ubuntu
- openSUSE

The link is:
- Show other versions.

"Show other versions" leads to the first listbox, but with no
pre-selected option.

What the page doesn't do yet, is to check for iceweasel explicitly.
