Absolutely. We could certainly do without the hateful and unfair
commentary, though.
Agreed. IMO this whole thing has grown way out of proportion, from any angle you look at it.

Please see -
I made a lot of adjustments based on the user feedback we've gotten over
the past couple of days. There's a screenshot in there that shows some
of the changes.

Ok, that's better. Still, I would suggest to make it a little more explicit. You see, when I didn't find the link to the torrents right away, my first reaction was to CTRL+F for "torrent".
I am ok with the main focus being set towards newbies, but I believe "old timers" should receive some love as well ;-)

That's exactly what the design revision has done. The archives link has
been swapped out with one general, 'Alternative download methods' link
that points to get-fedora-all, which has been supplemented with the
archives link.

As I said above, it's an improvement, but IMHO something like a "Advanced User? Click here for torrent, jigdo etc." link closer to the default option (the big blue "Download Now!" button) would be more helpful and would not distract newbies.

Just another $0.02 ;-)
