web-page and the options have to be explained. Now tell me which option
should we leave out?

o Stable or Development

yes, we should have a download page for the stable version only. The development version should be linked from the development part of the site. Now it interests only a minority of the users (there can be a link at the bottom of the page "you want to test beta'S?)

o Installation type


the dvd installation should be the only extremely visible one. of course, they must be also the others ways, but only for users coming here for the second time at least, and with they own page so the user can bookmark the page

o Arch

this is the most important one, downloading the wrong image is not a good idea. we should have (may be) _only_ this choice in the first page (making a decision tree is what html is made for)

o Download type

most people don't understand anything at this. anywhere you clic a link and the file come.

Each of these options is vital for the decision what, where and how to

wrong. 80% of the users (probably, may be more) can download one dvd image (i386) and go with it.

and see the point. having a _live_ _dvd_ _installable_ _smaller than 2Gb_ is so important I don't understand why openSUSE don't have it yet.

I'm very glad this discussion come now with real power user (you and others Novell folks). Thanks for that.

think differently. If you are true, openSUSE is _not_ well done. we _can_ simplify this.

and I don't say it's easy, but others do. How many time did Knoppix take to becomme popular? why?

we must keep the (very great) quality of SUSE and the ease of use of others.

look at the french page. I tried to make it the more alike english one while easier to read. it's probably not that good and can be largely enhanced, but as you may see all the doc is here at hand, but much less intimidating

In fact I think we should simplify much the tables as already said.
