Hi, I'm not a GIMP dev or involved in any way, but a quick comment from me.
One obvious thing: The easier you make it to find the legitimate / real download the less likely people will look for it elsewhere. Now let's assume I'm a windows user, not super skilled, but I heared that GIMP is a good graphics tool and I want to get it. Right now if I go to the gimp webpage I see a big download button. That looks good. However then it gets murky. I get to a download page that will offer me a bunch of stuff I don't need and don't understand. I have to scroll down quite a bit to read this: "Nightly builds for Windows are available at darkrefraction.com. This is unstable software, please use it at your own risk." Ok, I as a poor user read: "This is something I don't understand (a nightly build) and it's dangerous, because they talk about risk." There is no offer of a windows download that doesn't sound scary. No wonder people will go elsewhere to get the GIMP. Make it easier and non-scary to find the right download and you'll take away downloads from the badware-bundlers. cu, -- Hanno Böck http://hboeck.de/ mail/jabber: ha...@hboeck.de GPG: BBB51E42
