I did a review of a lot (> 20) software websites when figuring out what
text we should use for the navbar. 'Download' was the term used
overwhelmingly so I think it might be a better term to use because it's
in common use on a lot of other sites, and it helps give folks brand-new
to the site a clue as to what Fedora is (with the verb 'get,' it could
be almost anything, but with 'download' you know it's software or some
digital content without reading much else on the page.)

"More download options" is labeled as such because the link is directly
below the download button. 

If you look a bit further down the page, we break it down further into
more methods of getting Fedora - upgrading, physical media, desktops,
spins. E.g. on the right you'll see:

Other Options:
Formats: DVD ISOs, Physical Media 
Desktops: KDE, XFCE, GNOME, and others
Spins: Electronics Lab, Education, and others

So I'm not quite convinced that the link below the download button
should be changed. The strings are frozen right now, since the site is
actively under translation. Thanks for taking a look, though, and giving
your feedback, it is very much appreciated! Let us know if you catch
anything else.
