which leads to another page with a simple list of choices.

I think we had these kinds of discussions a few years back, but some things
didn't change since...

You're assuming that a visitor comes and wants to get Debian.
Do you really think that all those people want to instantly download
and install an operating system? I don't think they do; I think that
there is a sizeable chunk of visitors who will just be browsing,
come across a link to our site, and then click to see what it is.

Our company has used Debian since few yaears, but I never needed to visit Debian pages for security updates, documetation, etc. I had only two reasons: to read news about new releases and changes, and to download new testing netinst images. And then I ever thought: why Debian pages makes it so hard, most pages make it as easy as possible.
