So I went to download GIMP 2.10 and saw the BitTorrent link, and went, "huh." Then, for novelty's sake, I went and installed a BT client.
The official BT client - laden with ads - said that the GIMP installer from GIMP's own website "has a virus in it" and that upgrading to the paid BT client would protect me. Matches MD5 checksum; no virus detected by two scanners.
I feel a little put off by BT trying this scaremonger BS. Anyone have recs for a Win10 BT client that isn't skeevy?
@ctrlaltdog Thanks! I'll keep those in mind.
@colomar Tried it once a few years back, and never got it to work right.
@CharlotteOfOz Definitely prefer qBittorent.
@ami_angelwings Thanks! I'll take a look at it.
