Severity: normal

The new http://debian.org/distrib/ looks awesome, and far more usable.
In particular, the quick links in each section for the most common
images seems quite helpful.

The netinst section currently links to the separate 32-bit and 64-bit
x86 images.  How about linking to the multi-arch image instead, as the
front page does?

Thanks.

Because the front page already does it. It seems fair, on the contrary,
to offer a quick link to smaller images (multi-arch size is more than
twice the other ones) for the users who are looking for something a
little bit more specific they can't get from the home page.

Thanks for your thoughts anyway, we have still some work in progress to
improve the images presentation.

Regards

David

I guess I see the rationale for that.  I do, however, think that the
download link on the front page seems fairly easy to miss if you don't
know to look for it, in favor of the "Getting Debian" link in the page
text.  The download link seems to disappear into the header, perhaps
because when you've seen a logo/project banners on many sites you tend
to naturally look past them to find content, and don't expect to find
content *in* them. :)

In any case, it does seem odd to have the "Getting Debian" page not
provide the same link as the front page. How about in addition to the
single-arch links, rather than replacing them?
