Vista Critics Desperate for Publicity
It must stink to have a free operating system and a free productivity suite,
and realize the press just doesn't give a hoot. Meanwhile, Microsoft sneezes
and CNN cameras snap to attention.
In desperate search of press, two self-professed enemies of Vista tried to
crash the Redmond bash today in New York, and even claimed in a press release
that it will "spoil" the launch.
One group, defectivebydesign.com,
hates Digital Rights Management. I'm not in love with DRM, but if I made movies
or music, I sure would be.
Another group, badvista.org,
loves to take potshots at Vista while it promotes open source. I like open source
as much as the next guy, but I'd rather see these folks simply marketing Linux,
making it more usable and maneuvering OEMs into preinstalling and supporting
the darn thing! Now, that's how you battle Vista.
