Good question.  I is owned by Peter - or atleast that's what the about box tells me.  I see no real differences.

A ripoff / license violation. The issue is being reported to sourceforge staff.

Warning: as our testing indicates, this package contains apparent malware that may severely damage your system on uninstall (it killed a Windows 2000 install in vmware, by wiping HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT). I strongly recommend against even installing it on your system.
