GNU, GPL, Open Source "The FSF today launched a campaign with a twofold mission of exposing the harms inflicted on computer users by the new Microsoft Windows Vista and promoting free software alternatives that respect users' security and privacy rights. "Vista is an upsell masquerading as an upgrade. It is an overall regression when you look at the most important aspect of owning and using a computer: your control over what it does. Obviously MS Windows is already proprietary and very restrictive, and well worth rejecting. But the new 'features' in Vista are a Trojan Horse to smuggle in even more restrictions. We'll be focusing attention on detailing how they work, how to resist them, and why people should care", said FSF program administrator John Sullivan."

Am I trolling?

Im just talking about my expericence here, so if the FSF want me to use Free software at least give me good options and if you thing calling the people expressing their opinion "troll" will help to the FSF cause then you are totally wrong.

In my opinion the people like you do more damage to the FSF than MS.

OK, so maybe "troll" was a bit strong.

Nevertheless, whatever problem you're having you'd have a lot more joy pointing out some missing features to the developers, than to random OSnews readers.

So i guess to you is all right to say ramdon stuff in OSNEWS about MS but is not OK to say stuff about Free software, that's kind of hipocrytal I think.
