I must be a very experienced OS project user: I just look for a download 
link, then I can choose windows 32 bits, and a version (not the old 
releases), and I get an exe. What to do with it? Run it, and Lazarus 

It simply didn't come to my mind, that people wanted to install it, 
without downloading.
