A mailing list has a legitimate technical need for your e-mail address, and 
in general, that is the only required personal information for a mailing 
list subscription.

Downloading software technically works perfectly fine without ANY personal 
information (other than the IP address that is implicitly and automatically 
provided), so there is no legitimate reason to require any further 

I have absolutely zero understanding for any registration requirement on a 
public download.
