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.

Why not stop wasting time with campaigns such as this and simply produce better software than Micr$oft and shout about that? Oh! You can't do that! Oh! Now I see why you do silly campaigns like this.

PS1: Like several other correspondents on this post, I have tried Linux over many years but it simply isn't as good for desktop use as Windows - there I go, I've said it! I'm over it! Now I can stop wasting my time and just use my (Windows) computer.

PS2: Has anyone else noticed that later versions of Ubuntu are actually getting worse than earlier versions?

PS3: It's only a bl#*dy operating system; surely the pleasure and utility in using a computer is in the applications. Here again, Linux is well behind (unless you like to use the terminal app.
