  2. 2. Introduction 2
  3. 3. Windows 7 Sins Poisoning Education An education using the power of computers should be a means to freedom and empowerment, not an avenue for one corporation to instill its monopoly. Invading privacy Windows Genuine Advantage to inspect the contents of users' hard drives. Monopoly behavior Windows pre-installed -- but not by choice. Microsoft dictates requirements to hardware vendors Lock-in force updates on its users, by removing support for older versions of Windows and Office Abusing standards block free standardization of document formats Enforcing Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) technology measures that restrict what people can do with their computers Threatening user security Windows has a long history of security vulnerabilities, enabling the spread of viruses
  4. 4. Digital Freedom Free software is a matter of the users' freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0). The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this. The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2). The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
