Never noticed this, but you are right. However for other OS-es it is linking to info about that OS. That might not be what MSWindows users want.

Shouldn't we link

click and it will scroll down to the link?

I would vote for the anchor.

Yes, a link to information about Windows would be less helpful than a link to jump down to the binaries.  So, maybe adding a link with the text "Jump to download link" that links to an anchor on the page for the download links?

Also, the actual link for the windows is a bullet further down the page
under "MS Windows" that says "XP and up".  Couldn't it say "All recent
Windows (XP and up)" or "Windows executable (XP and up)" or something
similar? I don't know that current Windows users will know what "XP" and
"and up" and "binaries" mean...

That would be clear too.

Ps. It seems sometimes in some part of the world there are problems with reaching Don't know why. So the link to sourceforge is necessary too.ave fun.

So, I would label that link as "Direct link to Windows PSPP installation files on sourceforge" or something like that.
