Download.com is advertising GPL software downloads!

Very interesting!

It sounded so interesting, I even clicked on a link on my own website (which google ads actually forbids - but hey, here I continue the ad for free!):

Download.com is financing google ads, as well as a nicely and professional designed download page



For nothing else but the Audacity Audio editing tool, available on many platforms, GPL licensed.
The difference seems to be that Download.com is selling support plans, to help people use the software.

Very interesting model, especially for such a consumer-grade software. (yes, I know, it has professional features, but such an ad looks more like "audio editing for everybody").
