Here is a great website for a laugh. I can't see how people can spend their time on this:

AAARGH! Run for cover! It's the end of the world! Yeah right. Like we haven't heard that a million times.

While it is everyones right to express their own views, and I'm not saying they should not, but the one interesting thing I noticed after reading the opening page on that site was that they want you to support them, but they do not have the means for readers to disagree with what they have said and to have an opposing opinion. Therefore they themselves are guilty of the very thing they are accusing Microsoft with - not giving the user a choice.

In short, they do not have a public poll where visitors can vote whether or not they agree with their views.

This is the series of feelings I got.


Though I do support the FSF, that website was just a bunch of misquoted facts and a lot of BS.

Example:
1. WGA gets automatically updated as part of Microsoft's critical update procedures, giving users little choice but to accept changes to the systems Microsoft can monitor. For Windows 7 they are changing the name of the product to Windows 7 Activation Technologies (WAT), but the functionality remains the same.
2. With Windows Vista, Microsoft worked with PC manufacturers to significantly increase the hardware specifications for the standard user-experience, causing people to require new computers to run the updated OS.
