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.

Other than some well publicized, and rather old, attacks like Balmer's "cancer" quote, MS doesn't seem to do a whole lot of that publicly.

No, Microsoft is instead reverting to their old ways of forcing completely closed stuff onto us by getting the industry to accept it as "standard".

I just say exFAT.

Will the industry ever learn?
