Fyodor actually *DOES* host the installer. He never gave them permission to repackage it. In fact, the software license prohibits this explicitly. From the article: "This is exactly why Nmap isn't under the plain GPL. Our license (http://nmap.org/book/man-legal.html) specifically adds a clause forbidding software which "integrates/includes/aggregates Nmap into a proprietary executable installer" unless that software itself conforms to various GPL requirements (this proprietary C|Net download.com software and the toolbar don't)." So yeah, I can blame them. If you read the fucking article you would know this. p.s. Yes, I said that the parent should have read the article. No, I am not new here, but that doesn't mean that I, or anyone else, should tolerate willfully uninformed bullshit spouting.
