Agreed. I just bought the 3.2.1 docs, and my jaw dropped to the floor when instead of being presented with a PDF download link, I'm given some Windows exe downloader file. What the *censored*? I'm running Linux, as I suspect are a more than a few JBoss users, and I'm supposed to have Windows in order to *download* the documentation? I'm sorry, but this is not acceptable, and needs to be fixed ASAP.
You might be interested to know that ComponentSource has added a "Unix Edition" to all JBoss documentation in the JBoss store.
If you select the Unix Edition when purchasing JBoss documentation, you will not be required to download a Windows executable file as part of the download. You will be able to directly download the documentation .ZIP file.

last time i checked, the "unzip" command in unix/linux could unzip .zip files.
also, winzip has no problems taking a tar.gz / .tgz file and uncompressing it as well.
not sure why they offer 2 distinct versions tho.
