Having a default is fine, but please allow for the case where the user
wants to download for another platform. (I can't see your mock-up
right now due to network meltdowns, so if you already showed that,
excuse the redundancy.)

I don't see the point of that, and it just adds to name
confusion/clutter. Just use the user-friendly site with an easy to
find "geeks go here" button on it to get at the details.
