The Free Software Foundation Hates Vista: Tell Us Something We Don't Know!

I respect what open source zealots such as the Free Software Foundation have done. But its new Web site badvista.org is a cheap shot, and an easy one at that.

One mission of the site is to compel the press to tell users to look at open source alternatives to Vista, not just promote the Mac.

I'd love to do that, but on the client, the open source movement has a lot of work to do. These distros just aren't ready for the mass market, and I've long believed that vendors such as Novell and RedHat aren't even trying.
