There are a large number of great pieces of software that are on SourceForge and now the discussion makes it sound as though all SourceForge supplied software is filled with viruses, snoopware, etc. Enough is enough.

Skim is excellent software and the title of this thread makes it sound as though it will take over your system. Enough is enough.

Good Luck,
