I hit the wrong reply button, and accidently sent this to Benny first.
Here’s my review for the group.

Subject: Re: [Gramps-devel] rip off ?
It’s Gramps, packed with the usual suspects, i.e. the type of toolbar (that sets your home page and search engine) that you also find with so called free versions of other free software, like VLC.
I ran the setup, skipped the toolbar stuff, and found a clean Gramps 3.4.0, where clean means that it looked like the original. I saw no modifications that make it look like something else, and the about box has all the original elements, including copyright notices and link to our site.
Gramps is mentioned here: http://thefamilytreemaker.org/terms.php
Since it’s Gramps, and no money is asked, I don’t think it’s a big rip off, but it may be a breach of copyright. If it’s not ours, it is FTM’s at least.
P.S. I uninstalled it already, so I can’t run it again to give you more details.
