On a general note, while I appreciate the overall effort, just 
mentioning FPC3.0 and Lazarus 1.4, which both do not exist (just yet) 
might rather backfire and give it a kind of "vaporware" look...

Also, you might reconsider to immediately trigger the download of a 
random image in .exe format when switching to the "Get Lazarus" page, 
that doesn't look good either, considering that this is a way how not so 
nice fellows are trying to spread malware...

Just my quick 2c,
