Until Slashdot reverses it's decision to steal free software and bundle it with adware!!!
You think Slashdot packaging adware on a GPL application they don't own or haven't contributed to isn't probably the most important story Slashdot readers would like to know about?
Anonymous Coward #49797227, I've been around here a long time. You must be new and enjoy your iPhone's clean interface and easy access to Plants Vs Zombies, but some of us here give a damn about software freedom.
It's currently on the firehose. Vote it up!
I'm glad someone here sees the outrage. Got a lot of AC's telling me I'm whining.
I don't know, I've been on this website for a long long time, packaging and slinging adware is BAD NEWS folks.
Update: In a blog post issued shortly after this story posted, an unidentified member of SourceForge's community team wrote that, in fact, "this project was actually abandoned over 18 months ago, and SourceForge has stepped-in to keep this project current." That runs counter to claims by members of the GIMP development community.
The GIMP project is not officially distributed through SourceForge—approved releases are only posted on the GIMP project's own Web page. But Jernej Simoni, the developer who has been responsible for building Windows versions of GIMP for some time, has maintained an account on SourceForge to act as a distribution mirror. That is, he had until today, when he discovered he was locked out of the Gimp-Win account, and the project's ownership "byline" had been changed to "sf-editor1"—a SourceForge staff account. Additionally, the site now provided Gimp in an executable installer that has in-installer advertising enabled. Ars tested the downloader and found that it offered during the installation to bundle Norton anti-virus and myPCBackup.com remote backup services with GIMP—before downloading the installer authored by Simoni (his name still appears on the installer's splash screen).

...talking about is this!!!
SLASHDOT. What the hell is your problem?
... before you destroy all the evidence doing what the other posters suggested, you should be taking care of your elderly father and CALL THE POLICE.
Oh yeah, checked the previous posts. Def just a jerk.
Well, lookie! They did it.
Dunno what the attitude was all about though. Would you be upset by changing the color of a website? Maybe you support SOPA?
OR maybe you're just a jerk.
What the hell guys? Do we not care about these bills to even change the color scheme?

LESS QQ. MORE PEW PEW.
To be fair, yes. Unsigned drivers will stop you from playing protected content, but you can sign these drivers yourself and then install them.
I'm pretty sure, at least. I don't have any protected content to test this out on. Any thoughts?
