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.

As a FreeBSD user I have nothing but praise to tell about the FSF. They call the BSD license what it is, and that's okay coz GPL and BSD are two licenses meant for two different things.

I've even seen the oposite trend - The FreeBSD Foundation trying to work against GPL. Very bad decision. It made me change my mind about donations.

One thing must be understood: socially constructive behaviour is welcome, bashing and name calling is ... under my level.
