PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE --
The Free Software Foundation has issued a warning this week over the newly-released Windows 10 while blasting Microsoft.

"The Free Software Foundation urges everyone to reject Windows 10 and join us in the world of free software. Like all proprietary software, Windows 10 puts those that use it under the thumb of its owner. Free software like the GNU/Linux operating system treats users as equals and gives them control over their digital lives," they write in an effort just to raise publicity for GNU/Linux.

It's just the usual FSF fluff being pushed out that is all technically valid and legitimate but probably won't appeal to the masses and really make them reject their plans to use Windows 10 and switch to GNU/Linux without a more compelling case. If you want to read what they have to say about Windows 10, you can visit FSF.org.
