I have been a PGP user and privacy advocate for years. I am bothered by
the omission of a link to GnuPG on the Download page of the OpenPGP.org
web site. GnuPG is the second most widely used OpenPGP application, and
the only one that ships with an operating system (actually, I believe it
ships with more than one OS). There are email clients that are designed
specifically to include support for GnuPG. GnuPG, as implied by it's name,
is part of the GNU Project, and is not going to go away anytime soon.
The omission of GnuPG may indeed be a simple human omission on an old
seldom-updated site, but the situation has endured for too long. The
omission now appears to be deliberate, whatever the truth may be.
GnuPG is significant. There should be a link to it on the Download page of
the OpenPGP web site.
