FSF launches anti-Windows 7 assault

Quote:
The Free Software Foundation is taking measures to deter IT decision makers from installing Windows 7. The foundation contacted 499 of the top Fortune 500 companies (Microsoft being the one excluded), and warned that upgrading to Windows 7 will result in a higher dependency on Microsoft. Instead, they encourage that the companies use GNU/Linux on systems.

Windows 7 is Too Hot, and seems like FSF Cant Handle the Heat.

The non-profit organization is requesting donations to cover the cost of sending letters. If you care to fuel the fire, a $25 donation will support 50 letters and $100 will put 200 letters on the doorsteps of the decision makers.
This is the part that I love the most.

What a load of bollocks and sour grapes.

Then again, these are the same people who call it "Windoze" and think they are witty

Way to tarnish the Open Source image guys.

If the Free Software Foundation are really against proprietary software and are not jealous, why didn't they create a badsnowleopard.org or MacOSXsins.org website?
