GNU, GPL, Open Source When Windows Vista was launched, the Free Software Foundation started its BadVista campaign, which was aimed at informing users about what the FSF considered user-restrictive features in Vista. Luckily for the FSF, Vista didn't really need a bad-mouthing campaign to fail. Now that Windows 7 is receiving a lot of positive press, the FSF dusted off the BadVista drum, and gave it a fresh coat of paint.

The Free software world has enough to offer, but it always seems like the only time you ever really hear about the FSF is when they're busy badmouthing someone or something else. This doesn't leave a good impression with people.

They've been doing that for years and it still hasn't made much of a difference. Badmouthing others always, ALWAYS, leaves also a negative image of you and just doesn't make you look credible.

FSF really should make themselves heard in some entirely different way and try not to look so much like bitter lunatics.
