Hello,

I realized today that the edb download page is not clear enough for
all our windows users:
I was asking why the 9.0 was not installed in perconnal cumputer of a
customer and he told me that he didn't found it.

Explanations:

he was browsing the ftp directory ....so I show him the window link,
he clicked, and...told me that he didn't have an account and can not
download.. The point is that  the download didn't start automatically
and all he saw was the big form to create an account, not the line
with the direct download link. He though he had to register and such
to be able to download postgresql 9.0: he did't trust this external
website and fall back to the community one (and the ftp directory)

Dear EDB team, do you have an idea on how to improve the download
section of your website ? Perhaps make the direct link more proeminent
?
I don't know if such thing is frequent or not, I admit it looks
obvious to just read the text to understand, but, still, it happens :/
