[IDV #EBG-572751]: Suggestions for IDV webpages



Hi Jon,

I agree about the home page. By the way, did you know the official name for the
Mac operating systems is now "macOS" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacOS)? So
how about: "The Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) from Unidata is a free Java-based
software framework for analyzing and visualizing geoscience data that runs on
Windows, macOS, and Linux."

We are doing away with Solaris and SPARC so that's an accurate statement.

Best,

Unidata IDV Support
