Of course it should be still possible to download single parts. But the
main download page should list the full installers (for Win32) and
Lazarus packages, together with a small explanation. For users without
any experience the current scheme is much too complicated. As you know
from Systems, for many people just the name 'Free Pascal' counts, as it
indicates a Pascal based system -- the name 'Lazarus' does not. There is
no clear hint on the Free Pascal website about the function of Lazarus,
just a plain link. This costs us much of the existing potential.
