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.

That's a bit off-topic, but...

But honestly, how many people do you know who are the type to give Linux a try would enjoy using old software?


Depends on your needs. I've got the latest Ubuntu on my personal computers, but we've got the 8.04 LTS at work. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but it's a stable target, perfect for large deployments. Upgrading dozens of computers every six months is just out of question.
