<p>Seriously, this is all SO confusing (and always has been) for regular (i.e., Not dev) users. Regular users should never havek to visit a "download" page, let alone a wiki page if they don't want to.
<br/>A CD should be included in the device package that contains installable GUI "device management" apps for Linux, Windows, and Mac. These apps should have an auto-update preference (on launch, every week/month/whatever). The app should not only recognize the current device firmware version, but be able to download and install a new one if needed. It should also be able to perform the same bakup/restore functionality that the device does...
<br/>I know you all have an iPhone/Pod or have used one before. All of this stuff should be brainless and require very little documentation at all. Especially, not documentation about a 770 flasher for Mac, when most new N900 users won't even know what "770" or "N8xx" (or even "WiMAX") means -- all of this is on the top of the wiki page.
<br/>Anyway... Just my two cents. And, I know I'm jumping into this conversation late (or, early, if we start talking about Harmattan).

<br/>> At least change the link so that it says "Flashers for Nokia 770"
<br/>> instead of just flashers? Perhaps organise the page so that all the N900
<br/>> stuff is up top, and the rest is underneath in a "Legacy firmare &
<br/>> tools" section?
