I agree to that, users already find the Eclipse IDE overloaded. If you have only one download with everything, Eclipse will feel more overloaded and bloated to users.

Maybe can show only the 5 most popular distributions with a "MORE" button to show the other packages. I think it used to be that way in the past, but I may be wrong here.

We just did a re-design of the download page for Kepler. The initial re-design was to have only 5 packages and then a MORE button. However, we got some pretty negative feedback, mostly from some package maintainers, that this would limit the visibility of their packages.
