Boycott Vista

http://badvista.fsf.org/

“Vista is an upsell masquerading as an upgrade. It is an overall
regression when you look at the most important aspect of owning and
using a computer: your control over what it does. Obviously MS Windows
is already proprietary and very restrictive, and *well worth rejecting*.
But the new *'features' in Vista are a Trojan Horse* to smuggle in even
more restrictions. We'll be focusing attention on detailing how they
work, how to resist them, and why people should care”,

--FSF Program Administrator John Sullivan.

Re: Boycott Vista
*Yawn*

People like you are incredibly predictable. You think you're "bucking
against the establishment" and "non-conformist," but you are really naive,
and don't have an original thought in your head. This is nothing new. It is
only new to you. And you are new to reality. Give yourself a good slap,
shake the cobwebs out of your head, and take a good hard look at how things
really are, starting with yourself - if you dare.

As my Uncle Chutney sez: If the truth hurts, wear it.
And: Neither a follower nor a lender be.

Re: Boycott Vista
I'm sick of this, Vista is a fine product. Its about 10 times better then any version of linux I've ever seen. As for it not being an upgrade thats what it is. Its a stepping stone inbetween xp and blackcomb/vienna. (I'm still hoping for it) Anyway free software can still work on windows. Plus vista can duel boott linux. Also oh yea COMPATABILITY maybe your fine with minesweeper but I'm ready for Elderschrolls 5. If you want to speak out against a corperation try haliburton.
