No harm in calling a spade a spade. Microsoft and its channel partners are
marketing Vista as if it were the best thing after sliced bread. Sony
laptops come preloaded with it. Do you have a say? It is a drag on
hardware and hard-earned money.

This argument is made by FSF opponents and rms detractors who otherwise
support the open source initiative and is purely a misinformed / motivated
political viewpoint. However, we must understand that F/OSS owes so much to
rms and the FSF. Those that don't like FSF philosophy may well use BSD or
public domain software.
