Like the following?


Which is 3-click away from the main page:

Three clicks away is three clicks too much.

We have a nice "download" button on the front page, suggesting that you do not need to read the docs before downloading it, and pointing to an image that will not install a usable system for 99% of new users.

I vote for:
  1- putting the non-free firmware on all our images,
  2- let the installer check whether they are needed,
  3- if yes, let the user decide:

"Your network card/wifi adapter needs non-free spftware to operate. You may choose to keep this install 100% free software, in which case you will have no network connection until you plug-in a supported adapter, or to install the non-free software required to drive your adapter. What do you prefer?
  [] stay free (no network)
  [] use network (install non-free software)"

Kind regards, Thibaut.
