Why big open-source projects are fleeing SourceForge’s free software hub


PC World has the article Why big open-source projects are fleeing SourceForge’s free software hub.

SourceForge’s distasteful junkware-pushing antics have soured open-source projects on the one-time free software titan.

Distasteful is putting it mildly. I am glad I saw this article. I thought SourceForge was a brand that could be trusted. I am glad I found out about this. I have managed to pick up some junkware that I just noticed and eliminated. It’s hard to know where I got it. It’s been on my computer for quite a while. If you see stij.exe running on your computer, it is easy to get rid of without buying software removal tools that you don’t know if you can trust. The trick is to boot your computer in safe mode so that stij.exe is not running when you try to delete it.
