If a reader hangs on reading until the second paragraph, she will know
clearly what is the status of FWTools and what is recommended option:

"The latest FWtools version for Windows, 2.4.7, dates back to a pre-1.6 GDAL
version. In order to benefit from the latest and greatest, you can
refer to the other
binary builds mentionned in the here-after Windows section. "
