I think it is nice.  Easy to see the *huge* number of platforms, and 
generally easier to navigate. (IMHO)

Now, I have a couple of suggestions that might help out, but I also
think the site is fine as is.

How about "shading" the titles (like Information/Distribution/etc),
similar to or also.
Basically where each section ends up in a box. (oh, and it is like
this on and as well)

Also, I would think the mirrors list might be better at the top, where it
is much easy to notice. :)
