I'd like to point that not Linux nor GNU/Linux are synonymous of "hackers" and that hackers are not crackers.
The concern is not about Vista itself but about freedom, read some more about what free software is about, and what fsf is about and you'll understand.

Sorry that link doesn't work for you, it still does for me, I uploaded it to another image hosting service site:

Replying to Daan, about "our hatred to M$", is not that we (well at least I and a lot of free software supporters I know) hate M$ and all of his products, is just that we are very concerned about software freedom and freedom in general; M$ supports and encourages techniques that put our freedom in danger, techniques such as DRM and many other policies they have made, support and encourage, I mean... you can't even name a file con.jpg for Pete's sake! not even if you make it out of scratch, does that sound right to you? it may be "just an image" for you, but imagine what they will forbid tomorrow. Their unethical measures and lack of collaborative spirit are just wrong, we in the free software world like to collaborate, share, respect each other's choices and support freedom, you can see the results nowadays with recent distros are just amazing, they all work great and allow you to work the way you want, give you the tools you want and need, and they all give you the freedom to do whatever you want with them; with Windows you can't even uninstall IE! not to mention the little "con.jpg" thing.

I'd like to say that Windows 7, still in development, will claw toward the light (as Windows Paltrow), under a license which that respects the freedom and privacies of computer users that will only come in the result of more pressure needed, taking the removal of Windows Vista's reduced functionality mode as a lesson. Take a phrase from the Cylons from BSG: "All this has happened before, and it will happen again."

I don't really care about this microsoft thing. XP was okay but vista wasn't better. Free software can be bad because of compatibility issus but you get less viruses, but hackers use them to put viruses on computers. I think Vista isn't good, but being so concerned about it is retarted. Someone once said: Stop being concerned about your computer and get a life. Harsh but you have to agree. Life isn't all computers :P

Taking action before the release of the next version of Microsoft Windows, as well as its service packs, is one of the most effective means we have to influence software freedom and represent our members' views to the world. I hope you guys continue these efforts as we are looking forward into the release of Windows 7 (known later as Windows Paltrow).

Although there is no kill switch in Vista SP1, it enforces a Protected Media Path DRM. Seems that Microsoft is now giving up on Vista and is setting up business users to switch from Windows XP to Windows 7, which we will be seeing to be released under a license that respects the freedom and privacy of computer users, will be without DRM, and will get a very interesting name, I think it is going to be Windows Paltrow, named after actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

For now, encourage sites such as Crysis-Online and inCrysis to increase awareness of the restrictions and problems in Windows Vista and participate in the campaign to give more pressure, and the only thing that will work in the end is for Microsoft to release all of their software under a license that respects the freedom and privacy of all computer users.
About this blog
The BadVista campaign, started in December 2006, advocated for the freedom of computer users, opposing adoption of Microsoft Windows Vista and promoting free (as in freedom) software alternatives. It declared victory in January 2009, with supporters moving on to do the same work against Windows 7.
