Have any of you heard about SourceForge's recent takeover/highjacking of
GIMP for Windows and Nmap? This was a bit of a shocker to me. It seems
to be a way of forcing the inclusion of adware in downloads, for popular
projects that don't agree to it.

The beginning of the end for a former open source champion? So sad when
short-term thinking takes over.
