On this issue, isn't it possible to let a web server detect the OS
requesting the download? So the server can then do the picking and send
the right version to the requestor?
Or maybe the info available to the server about the requesting OS isn't
that detailed. Not sure. At least I'm sure I can use a single download
link for an app's Mac and Windows installers.
