Would this make everybody happy?
- The default Desktop is at the top and selected by default.
- It is visiable that it includes GNOME for people who are looking for
a specific Desktop
- Other DEs are listed in at the default Download page rather than
hidden behind links
- The Arch can be selected at the download page
	- Maybe we can make the "System Architectures" section expandable and
collapsed by default to not clutter the interface with to many options
	- Not sure about PPC (its moving to a secondary arch in F13)
