Description

https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-unix.html.en#using tells you to install Torbutton.

More generally, this whole page is telling you the wrong way to do things, now that Tor Browser Bundle Linux exists.

Similarly, https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-osx tells people to use the Vidalia bundle installer on OS X, and tells people it includes polipo.

At least https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-windows tells people to use TBB at the top, but I wonder if that's loud enough.

tor-doc-linux and osx tells people to use TBB at the top. Maybe we should scrap the instructions and simply leave the TBB paragraph at the top of all three pages.
