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”,

Re: Boycott Vista, NOT!!!
I totally agree with Richard Urban on this. Windows Vista is a vast improvement over XP. Granted the driver issues, but as time goes by, those will be a thing of the past.
