95% of Mac users downloaded the wrong version

Thanks to “Observer” for leaving a comment pointing to this salutary story of the worst download page ever, which caused 95% of Mac users to try out a two year old version of a piece of software called Mono, instead of the current one. 95% of Windows users downloaded the wrong version too, the page was so bad. The faulty design was caused by exactly the problem with mediawiki image linking which I explained how to get around in my recent post how to make image links in mediawiki

Well done Miguel de Icaza for honestly blogging about the mistakes as well as the accomplishments, there’s a lesson for us all there I think.
