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.

This is software, written by men, so mistakes are bound to happen.

Indeed. If the HURD had been written by women, it would be Microsoft trying to get a foothold in the desktop market today with their niche "Windows" product.
