I don't see the issue here. Postgresql.org is not directly supporting 
Enterprise DB or telling Users buy this product. 

I would agree with you if another company decided to come up with 
another installer of equl quality then Postgresql.org refused to offer a 
link next to OneClick installer. 

As long as postgresql.org continues to be impartial then I see no 
problem.  This seems to be biting one of the hands that feeds the community.

Enterprise DB is doing it for FREE  wheres the problem ????  Where's 
Postgresql inducement of Enterprise DB???  If you say by mire fact 
there's a link then i would point out that logic leads to every link is 
an inducement to everyone.
