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.

"I guess the FSF found out a long time ago that it's just easier to post controversial content to a website (if not just plain FUD) than creating software worth using and that can keep up with the times.
The FSF doesn't CREATE software. Its purpose is to promote GPL software. "

Yea Stallman gave up on the Hurd a long time ago and now just tries to defame software that don't follow his carefully crafted definition of Freedom.
