Raspbian download file size incorrect

On the official Raspbian downloads page the file size for “Buster with desktop and recommended software” states 1945 MB. But it actually is 2.43 GB when downloaded.

Re: PI 4 Compute module with pci-e?

In case you're curious where "Jessie", "Stretch", "Buster" and other names come from, they are the titles given to major releases of Debian which is the Linux distribution upon which our beloved Raspbian is based.
