Looks good.

The text is rather small, and is sized absolutely, hence ignoring the
user's chosen font sizes. Haven't we learned to respect the user's
browser settings? Text sizes in “em”, please, not “px”.

The “Get” icons are much better with clearly-distinct decorations. Thank
you! (The “Get going” icon looks unfortunately phallic, but maybe that's
just my current frame of mind.)

Today's nit to pick: “Bazaar runs on Windows, Mac OS X, GNU/Linux and
UNIX. Its only requirement is Python 2.4.”

That could imply that Python versions *later* than 2.4 don't satisfy the
requirement, which in the current landscape of “not tested on anything
later than Python 2.x” software is quite a reasonable interpretation.
Probably best to say “Python 2.4 or later”, or whatever is the case.
