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.

They've been doing that for years and it still hasn't made much of a difference


Being #1 for decades on everything , don't mean the FSF as to stop reminding people about why proprietary is bad. It's like your parent telling you poison and fire is bad for your health.

Badmouthing others always, ALWAYS, leaves also a negative image of you and just doesn't make you look credible.


That's why the proprietary software have such a bad image and reputation and use anonymous coward to promote it in public , the FSF is rather unknown , because it does it's job so well people forget it mater and is #1 , the FSF always leave a good impression on those who use it and follow in it's way of doing things.

You never feel bad giving and sharing your software and liberating proprietary software.

FSF really should make themselves heard in some entirely different way and try not to look so much like bitter lunatics.


The FSF is not about people or about being heard , it's about making Free Software , liberating and buying proprietary software to Free them.

Thing is, most freetards actually seriously believe that proprietary software, is, somehow "bad" and free software is "good."

With insane people like that, there's just no point in having a conversation about it.

While I would agree that some people obsess too much and take things to an alarming extreme, I would add that it is equally difficult to have a meaningful conversation with someone who regularly uses such childish terms as "freetard". It's just not constructive. And it makes you look rather worse than the people you are criticizing. Just try to make your points without all the silly and irrelevant name-calling and I think you will find that your points are taken more seriously.

Thing is


Yes that was a good fictionnal movie , yet it as no basis on reality ... Just like you ...

most freetards


Libel and slander as an anonymous who think of himself as a characther in a sci-fi movie ... You really have oustanding braveness and debating skills.

actually seriously believe that proprietary software, is, somehow "bad" and free software is "good."


They are right too ...

That don't means it's perfect for everyone or that it work 100% of the time , but that's proprietary who lie when they say that.

With insane people like that


Your a doctor in psychiatry too now , nice to know ...
That your not that either.

there's just no point in having a conversation about it.


Conversation are between two people , who have something to say and debate , in a mutual respecting environment. People are allowed to make sentence and statement , diverging too.

You don't qualify and are not qualified ...
