Also that's his only game that was CD-ROM only for getting the full game at the time.

Blades of Exile was available only on CD as well.

N:R was faster to produce since most of the text was from the original and the game used a modified Avernum 3 game engine.

It used the Blades of Avernum engine, actually.

Having now enough experience for an educated opinion, I say N:R is unequivocably better than N:O. I say the same about A3 and E3.

I love the way armour works in the remake. The % values are simple, yet ingenous.

In case there was any remaining doubt how Jeff feels about someone distributing Nethergate, we can now say that as of 3 September 2016, the answer is ABSOLUTELY NOT.

Didn't Jeff say that in response to someone offering Nethergate Resurrection and not the original Nethergate?

Apparently it all started when someone tweeted him something like "I just bought nethergate resurrection and its already abandonware", so it's hard to say if Jeff is willing to release the original version of it unless someone asks him about the right version.

An acquaintance of mine from another forum asked him specifically about original Nethergate a while ago and he made it very clear that it's a no-go. Sorry.

You are entirely incorrect. I saw the website in the question back when this happened. The game was original Nethergate. The distribution of original Nethergate is unquestionably what Jeff was condemning.

@spiderwebsoft: I literally bought Nethergate Resurrection off Steam today. Now I learn it's abandonware. Wasted five bucks!

There may have been some separate incident involving the original, but jeffs tweet is clearly in response to resurrection.

That tweet was a reply to Jeff's tweet. Note the timestamps:
