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.

With FOSS, I get much greater freedom to have complete control over my computer, and use it as I wish.


What exactly do you mean by complete conrol? I can install any OS that I choose on my computer, so how what type of control are you talking about? If I use Eclipse instead of Visual Studio, what control do I gain? Especially since if I switched to Eclipse I would lose functionality.
