So SourceForge has gone from terrible to (somehow) even worse than that.

It makes me wonder; why don't we have a good site for Windows programs yet?

Ideally, it'd be run by volunteers (not a company with a profit motive), would manually moderate the programs posted them (and remove any adware/spyware/bundled programs by force if necessary) and tell every malware ridden sleazy ad network to sod off.

It exists in more niche subject areas. If I look for game making resources, a lot of those sites actually do proper moderation and try and make sure viruses aren't present in uploads. Places like MFGG are pretty good about this. So why don't we have that for software in general?

I mean, there's GitHub and package managers, but it's disappointing how this market has no honest people in it.
