The Haskell.org committee is considering a change to the [Haskell.org
Downloads page]. The change is being reviewed in a [GitHub PR].

The specifics of the change are to replace Chocolatey with ghcup as
the preferred installation method of GHC, cabal-install and
haskell-language-server on Windows. The overall effect is that the
install instructions become common over Windows, Linux and MacOS. The
Chocolatey install method is mentioned further down the page. (The PR
does not impinge on Stack. The Stack instructions remain unchanged.)

The committee would welcome input from any interested parties,
particularly those who have familiarity with Chocolatey, or ghcup on
Windows, or both. You are welcome to comment on the [PR itself][GitHub
PR] (or this thread if absolutely necessary).

Thanks to @bodigrim for the PR.
