Ok, if it could be changed into something that won't get clicked first
thing by novice users who are trying to download Sugar.

For example, "archive" or "files".

I'm ok on skipping the landing page.

As for "Get Sugar", while it may seem more user-friendly, it violates
the de-facto standard naming used by all web sites. Even novice Internet
users search for a "download" link when they want a program.
