What's the trouble? If you have a developer's account then log in and download. If you don't then open App Store and search for Xcode.

The trouble is that things appear circuitous.
No matter what I do, I end up at the page titled "DownLoad Xcode 4" which is at
On this page there are 12 Hyperlinks.  Any of which may or may not reach a point that has a hyperlink that says "download Xcode 4".  When I click it, it just goes back to the page titled "DownLoad Xcode 4" at

i.e. Circuitous!

That's the trouble.

The link on the website is designed to Open the download in the AppStore application.  You need to be running the latest version of Snow Leopard OSX 10.6 or preferably OSX10.7 Lion to have the AppStore application.

If you don't have these then you won't have the AppStore and will not be able to download the latest XCode

According to MacBook Air System Informatio, I have:
System Version: Mac OS X 10.7

Is there a download link in the AppStore?

The actual solution wasn't the version, since I have 10.7
The solution was embedded in my original question where I stated "New to Apple".

The solution:
in AppStore, Xcode 4 has a price of 'Free'
It is actually the Download Button, i.e., clicking the button gives a prompt to Download, to which I said yes.  It is doing so now.

Shame on Apple.  We Microsoft engineers have been beaten with the construct to "Tell the User how to do things".

Clearly, in this instance, they made no mention of the fact that in order to Download, I should click the word "Free".

In ASP.NET world I would have set the text property of the button to "Free, Click to Download"
