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.

Why not stop wasting time with campaigns such as this and simply produce better software than Micr$oft and shout about that? Oh! You can't do that! Oh! Now I see why you do silly campaigns like this.

PS1: Like several other correspondents on this post, I have tried Linux over many years but it simply isn't as good for desktop use as Windows - there I go, I've said it! I'm over it! Now I can stop wasting my time and just use my (Windows) computer.

PS2: Has anyone else noticed that later versions of Ubuntu are actually getting worse than earlier versions?

PS3: It's only a bl#*dy operating system; surely the pleasure and utility in using a computer is in the applications. Here again, Linux is well behind (unless you like to use the terminal app.

Why does FUD always return to the CLI? Anno 2009 there is no need to get into the CLI for day to day use. I spend days in Gnome without the NEED to use the CLI.

That I do use it, because I'm an ingrained old fart is another thing. Even if you know something can be done graphically, sometimes the CLI is simpler for one who knows how to use it.
