Welcome to BadVista.org, the Free Software Foundation campaign opposing Microsoft Vista adoption and spotlighting free software alternatives.

The official industry release day for Windows Vista was November 30. Vista will be released on users in January 2007 (or so the story goes).

With your help, we will:

  • Organize supporters into effective actions protesting Microsoft's daylight theft of our freedoms
  • Aggregate news stories cutting through MS Windows Vista marketing propaganda
  • Provide a user-friendly gateway to free software adoption

You can help the campaign and stay up-to-date by signing up for the BadVista mailing list. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to get involved, so there are two ways to do this.

The recommended way is to have an account at fsf.org. If you've already set one of those up, maybe by donating in the past as an associate member, or in order to leave comments on the GPLv3 drafts, then you can just go to your mailing settings and check the new box for the BadVista mailing list.

If you don't have an fsf.org account yet, then it's easy to set one up. We're using a single sign-on for everything we do now, so you'll only have to go through this once. It only takes a minute, and most of the information is optional (please just leave any fields you don't like blank instead of telling us your address is 123 asdf St.).

This is a blog, and we want it to be a conversation and a community—once you're registered, you'll be able to leave comments on posts here, and we hope you will. Test it out with a "Hello" at the bottom of this post if you want.

But if you're a wallflower or none of this appeals to you, or if you are a Microsoft employee and don't want us to know that you're keeping tabs on us, then feel free to use this form.

Welcome!

Hello! Salam!

I'd like to join the BadVista campaign and speak out for my precious software freedom, demanding that all Microsoft software (including Windows Vista and its successor) to be released under a license which respects the freedom and privacy of computer users.

Saya nak menyertai kempen BadVista dan mengucap untuk kebebasan perisian saya, semua perisian Microsoft (termasuklah Windows Vista dan penggantinya) mesti dikeluar di bawah lesen yang menghormati kebersendirian dan kebebasan pengguna komputer.
