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.

No , you are amusing , me , aparently with my mrere presence in writing I am downright scaring the cowards and liar into a frenzy ...


What is with you and oddly placed spaces? And doesn't emacs have spellcheck by now?

If your presence shows anything it is that there is a percentage of every group that needs to be part of a fanatical following to feel balanced. It isn't enough to simply use an alternative. You have to feel morally superior to the opposition. And Stallman provides you with that feeling, doesn't he?

For he hath given you his Freedoms
That thou did not know thine had
And he shalt smite the enemies of Freedoms
Freedoms he hath defined for you to follow

Bad writting skills.

I am not using emacs.

If your presence shows anything ... following to feel balanced.


You see fanatios and followers in your alphabet soup and breakfest cocopop ...

It isn't enough to simply use an alternative.


Windows is the alternative ... So do Apple , BSD , commodore , Amiga , beos , etc ...

You have to feel morally superior to the opposition.


I don't feel moraly involved or superior to anyone here , I certainly don't see liar , coward , thieve and morons as opposition either.

And Stallman provides you with that feeling, doesn't he?


Stallman is about feeling for you , one of pure hatred and demonizing and even similar to the devil in your own madness and disconection from reality.

Stallman for me is the guy who created the FSF , helped foster the GPL and who stand for Free Software defense , creation and advocating.

Why you don't use your real name ?

Richard Stallman created the concept of Free** Software as in not free as in beer but Free as in an open source license that requires derivative work to fall under the same license. But instead of giving it a name that accurately describes it like "Forced Open License" he drapes the whole thing in "Freedom" as if the ability to look at the source is a divine right. The shocking thing is how so many people actually buy into it. It really makes me wonder about theories regarding a religious fanaticism gene.

I don't use my real name because I don't want to test the extremes of foss fanaticism. If you don't like it then tough because part of the fun of the internet is being able to call bs on groups like the fsf without having to worry about personal reprisals.
