[arch-dev-public] Get Arch Link

So in amazing zealot form, I've been telling my co-workers to download
arch and install it!

There has been one unfortunate reaction, with several of the people I
told to download it.  They never can find the "Get Arch" link in the
upper right hand corner.  It sounds stupid, but every one of them said
they scanned for the "download link", didn't see it, and in one case
just downloaded ubuntu.  A lot of them also didn't seem to even look
at the top row of links, they only looked down the right hand column
of links.  I think a lot of them were just looking for the word

Maybe in the top "Welcome to Arch Linux!" blurb, we could put a link
with the word _download_ in it?  Or anywhere on the page?  Just as
long as the word download is there.  It's ubiquitous across almost all
sites with stuff to download.. except Arch.
