Having followed this thread, I can well see why Sebastian and others
were offended.  I mention that not just to keep throwing gasoline on the
fire but because I intend what follows to be a *respectful* suggestion.
Given the animosity on this thread, I don't want people to misunderstand

Since I don't run Microsoft software I have not paid a great deal of
attention to the downloads the Tor Project offers for it.  So I went and
took a look at your download pages to see what Anon Mus was talking
about.  I see that for the bundles, you indicate the Microsoft Windows
versions are for Windows 7, Vista, and XP but for the Expert package
(should it really be called a bundle?) you also list other versions of
the OS.   While I do not at all agree with the tone of some of his
posts, I wonder if Anon Mus might not have a valid point about this.
Perhaps on the Expert package for Windows a brief explanatory note
should be added reflecting some of the discussion on this thread?
