FWIW I think the point here is that "here's the ftp server, you figure
out which file you need" is now archaic. The new thing is A Big
Button that you press that defaults to the "right" file for you, and a
small "other versions" link. See eg firefox.com.
Also, one normally skips to the end to get the latest version, but on
ftp.gnu.org/gnu/emacs/windows, "emacs-25.1-2" sorts before "emacs-25.1",
which doesn't help.
Perhaps MS Windows users are additionally confused to not get an .exe
file that they Just Click to start installing. There's a 200 line README
file that explains what to do, but no-one reads the README. :)
