    From these Posts:
    Code:
    I guess they [Piriform] want more toolbar installations
    Code:
    Money is a pretty common motivator

    No great loss IMO.

    I had never heard of Ninite before. Looks like a nice program, but way too limited range of programs to be of any use to me. I use FlashGet to check for updates for around 200 programs daily - and I'm adding more programs every few days.

    This is actually a good lesson for you. You believe that they're saints because they offer slim versions ;)

    There's also Allmyapps with much more applications, i don't know though if they make clean installs (without toolbars and stuff) like Ninite

    Damn... no more CCleaner? That's what I used to update it.

    I am glad that Piriform Still offers (Slim = Clean) versions,
    when other vendors offer Only *Bundled with Ad-ware* Freeware.

    How long will Piriform offer Slim versions?

    I do Not know, because I'm Not officially/unofficially
    associated with Piriform or any other Vendor.

    Never wrote that they are Saints.
    This is your (mis)interpretation...;)
