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.

You answered your own musing a couple of lines up. The natural consequence of any "have to" order is that some entity must force compliance, regardless of an individual's level of willingness.


The same entities that force compliance of any other kind of license.

Other than that there's no force feeding, if only because I'd bet RMS hasn't even considered that anyone would willingly choose a non OS license if everyone was informed about it's benefits. Hence all the preaching.
