The rebirth of SourceForge

Sourceforge has been quite a presence in my life, it is the place where eventually I ended up visiting way too often across the years whenever in need of downloading some file from an open source project.

One thing that always bugged me was the fact that the site itself was quirk, slow and just plain difficult to use for both developers and end-users.

Now, I'm getting pleasantly surprised (and perhaps spoiled). Slowly, very slowly I see a new Sourceforge surfacing. It accepts logins from the most popular web services available today (google, facebook, twitter, ...), has a front page that actually looks useful and inviting for visitors to use. Last but not least, finally seems to be focused in improving the forum support. Check it out at

Bravo! I have to say that this is a rebirth for this giant.
