+ - Activist groups announce support for free software->

Submitted by

johnsu01 writes "Activist groups Friends of the Earth International, the Green Party, People and Planet, and the New Internationalist have joined the Free Software Foundation to support a coalition statement advocating a free society based on free software and criticizing Microsoft Vista, published as part of the FSF's BadVista.org campaign. The statement highlights dangers activists face when they are dependent on proprietary software, including communications limited by DRM and surveillance, and support of companies opposed to their political goals. Judging by the number of signatures so far, Bruce Byfield may be right that this is a formal statement of the attitude already occurring in the nonprofit world."
