Let Microsoft know they need to fix their search engine

In a comment on the last post, mfoetsch pointed out that a search for BadVista-related terms using Microsoft's live.com engine was producing rather...unexpected results. Many posts and pages turn up that link to BadVista.org, but no results from badvista.org itself appear.

So I did a little testing. I checked the results at google.com, yahoo.com, ask.com, and live.com. You can see from the screenshots that there does seem to be a problem.

Is it deliberate? No way to know I suppose, though to their credit if you search for "badvista.fsf.org", you will get some (rather odd-looking) results. So perhaps this is some kind of technical problem with the interaction between their search bots and our site.

Either way, you should let them know about the omission. Leave a comment here to confirm you did it, so we can keep an informal count. Let's see how quickly we can get it fixed.

à propos de ce 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.

You can support the campaign by joining the FSF.
