Nexenta OS - the force of registrations

This should be a general posting about something I really hate.

Nexenta forces its users to register to start a download.
And if there is something which I really hate then it is to register myself to start a download of a (free) software.
But there is no limitation I thought of to avoid this. But if a distribution called itself a complete GNU-based open source operating system built on top of the OpenSolaris kernel and choose for its home there is a point where I think: It's free software, free like in freedom.

So there is nothing to avoid the publication of an (in)officiall list of mirrors:

Please notice that this list shows only the URIs for the Installation CD.

But of course you can make a donation to the Nexenta team if you like. I only don't want to register somewhere to download a (hopefully) free OS. Thanks for your interest.
