When would you use #1, #4, or #7?

1/7: Is the “Netlify archive” and the most downloaded option. I’m not sure why the “script kids” choose the tar.gz variant over deb, but so be it.

And 4 I guess is mostly for the Rasberry pies out there (ARM => V7).

In my opinion, these files are interesting when the binary is placed in the Hugo directory. Not even need to configure the PATH. This is a portable installation, for example on a USB stick. (And basically the version of Hugo doesn’t even need to change anymore, as long as it works).

NB: It also means that a Windows developer can easily add a Linux binary in this directory…
