The latest Axiom download package is HUGE to be downloaded over a slow dial-up 
connection. I downloaded it over several days just to realize that much of the 
material I downloaded was already with me.
The download system could have been even more flexible such as that of the 
cygwin package. The person who is downloading should have the choice of what he 
can download instead of compelling him to download everything. For eg, he can 
downlaod only bin, or bin+doc(dvi or pdf or ps or html as per his requirement). 
It would have been even better if the users could upgrade the previous versions 
instead of downloading it afresh (through a system more convinient than the CVS)
By the way don't ignore the people who have MikTex installed on there systems.
