I wouldn't say that downloading an executable from some blog is the
best thing to recommend.  Especially not if the goal is to check the
integrity of the Fedora .iso images.

I'm not sure what to recommend for Windows users honestly.  With the
recent work that has gone into Fedora to allow cross-compiling windows
binaries, it might be possible to build an sha256sum.exe that could be
hosted on fedoraproject.org.  That might be a little more trustworthy
for us to suggest Windows users use to verify the .iso file we
distribute.

What about https://fedoraproject.org/verify ?
