Microsoft hasn't made any significant changes to the Microsoft Download Center
since February 2003. Five years later, the company has quietly made a full-fledged revamp to most parts of the site.

Over the years, Microsoft has been tweaking the site by adding new categories and adding banners here and there. However, the homepage of that site is now gone, and has been replaced by the site pictured above. What is curious about this update is that the actual download pages
for downloads have not been revamped; it's not clear if this is on purpose (I hope not) or if the change still hasn't been applied everywhere.
