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."

...at least once I'd like to hear that I should use Free software because it has better quality...

OK, let me tell you. You should use free software because it has better quality.

Actually, I listed the reasons why I don't like windows, http://jackson.io/windows_explanation.html, and the reasons I like Linux, http://jackson.io/linux/#prefer_linux.

These are my attempts at specific itemizations. I even give a small salute to Bill Gates in the former.
