google search for "grass windows" yields only old pages
|Reported by:||steko||Owned by:|
http://www.google.com/search?q=grass+windows is a common approach by Win users who want to know more about GRASS for Windows. But that search yields only old pages like this one: http://grass.itc.it/platforms/wingrass.html that are plainly old stuff.
It would be better to remove this (and other) old pages, or at least point them to the new WinGRASS download page. Else people will be still confused about which is the right working version. Don't forget that cygwin, source compiling and the like is just PITA for 99% of Win users.

I take this as solved. Feel free to re-open if you don't agree.
Nothing in that page is seriously out of date as far as I can see. The links are up to date and indeed were improved recently when someone made a similar point. Perhaps the page looks out of date because of the old Cygwin screenshot at the top? Just now I have added one of native WinGRASS too, just to make it a bit shinier. :) (Should show up on the webserver in a few hours)
