This is a mini app with these functionalities:

1.  Resolve the current operating system
2.  Resolve the preferred mirror url
3.  Display the disclaimer
4.  Show the correct sdk version (loaded from config xml)
5.  Let user download the exe or dmg

This was done earlier as a pure flash app by Tomasz Maciąg, but we ran into
issues because the source repo cannot contain binaries (the fla file, etc.)


Maybe I'm missing something but here I'll use a simple image to link since

The filesize can be optimized quite a bit, but if you can do it with an
image and javascript, we would love to use that instead.

I dont think it is relevant in a smartphone as you wouldnt want to download
apache flex on a phone.   But I do agree that the page wont look very good
with a flash player logo in the middle.

 Thanks,
