First I thought you are pulling my leg...
But then I had a look at what mailer you are using:
Microsoft Office Outlook 11              8-O
Well, Savannah only hosts Free Software that runs on free operating systems.
So I really didn't expect someone using unfree operating systems here.  O:->

I have the impression, that you have a very strange view on what Free Software
is about. On the one hand you are concearned about using some unfree software 
(sourceforge) on the other hand your whole software environment (operating 
system) is unfree. Sorry, but it seems you are not the one who should throw 
the first stone at sourceforge. ;-)

And what is bad about being sponsored by some "giants"?
The Free Software Foundation is also sponsored by some large corporations,
including HP. See

Free Software is about freedom, not about money.

If you are looking for free system distributions:
There are of course many more, but these are those who are... pure.
