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.

They've been doing that for years and it still hasn't made much of a difference

Being #1 for decades on everything , don't mean the FSF as to stop reminding people about why proprietary is bad. It's like your parent telling you poison and fire is bad for your health.

Badmouthing others always, ALWAYS, leaves also a negative image of you and just doesn't make you look credible.

That's why the proprietary software have such a bad image and reputation and use anonymous coward to promote it in public , the FSF is rather unknown , because it does it's job so well people forget it mater and is #1 , the FSF always leave a good impression on those who use it and follow in it's way of doing things.

You never feel bad giving and sharing your software and liberating proprietary software.

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

The FSF is not about people or about being heard , it's about making Free Software , liberating and buying proprietary software to Free them.
