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.

Fell for it with vista and tried linux for 2 years, got fed up with it not working. Linux is a fiddly operating system. you have to fiddle with it for it to work. Once you get it running it's stable, just getting there is hell though.. Video drivers are unstable. Every release of ubuntu has some new incompatibility, or bug that you have to work around, so every time you upgrade to new software you have to fiddle with something.
