Windows 7 sins campaign launched

The Free Software Foundation (FSF), preceding the release of Microsoft Windows 7 launched its "Windows 7 Sins" campaign at http://windows7sins.org,

 

As expected, the campaign makes a strong case against Microsoft and proprietary software.

 

The campaign outlines seven major areas where proprietary software in general and Microsoft Windows in particular hurt all computer users: invading privacy, poisoning education, locking users in, abusing standards, leveraging monopolistic behavior, enforcing Digital Restrictions Management (DRM), and threatening user security.
