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.

Perhaps, but sanity and reason often get further than outright raving madness in the long run.

Oh, I've absolutely no argument there. The FSF has been ranting and raving for decades, to no effect except to damage the credibility of the more reasonable advocates. It took the OSS movement to finally get us off low center, still dragging along the FSF like a trailer with two flat tires.
