    I was at Softpedia's website and noticed that there's a password manager named PassMem, with a GUI that actually looks KeePass.

    -http://www.softpedia.com/progScreenshots/PassMem-Screenshot-120194.html

    I couldn't find any info, on the app's website, mentioning whether or not it's based on KeePass, at all. I'm short on traffic, so won't be downloading to verify it. But, I can't find much info on it either.

    Has anyone ever heard of it before? o_O

    Looking at the screen shots, totally a rip-off of version 1.xx of KeePass they only added those big ugly keys in the toolbar and changed some icons, the nerve of some people. And they are even selling it for 20 dollars. I've seen one password manager before and also copied everything from KeePass version 1.xx, but offering it for free. This one's just pure ~ Snipped as per TOS ~

    Well KeePass is an open source, so it is not unexpected and if they changed icons, they can offer it under another name, but I am not sure, if they can ask money for it.
