Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
Back in November, the popular open source image editing program GIMP ended their association with SourceForge and dropped the site as its host. Since that time, downloads of GIMP have no longer been available on the site but have been moved to the GIMP’s website.
The split was the result of GIMP’s concern over policies at SourceForge, primarily SourceForge's use of DevShare, an installer for Windows that bundles third party software offers with FOSS downloads. In addition, the GIMP folks had reservations about potentially deceptive "download here" buttons on ads being served by the likes of Google's AdSense.
