Buy Windows Vista, give your soul to Microsoft

Or you might as well.

The Windows Vista license agreement includes many completely ludicrous points, as [Wendy Seltzer points out](http://wendy.seltzer.org/blog/archives/2006/10/19/forbidding_vistas_windows_licensing_disserves_the_user.html). Not only will the operating system phone home to Microsoft regularly, Microsoft also wants to stop you from listening to music, prevent you from trying to find out what’s wrong with your computer and make it impossible to upgrade your machine too often.

[I](http://www.ubuntulinux.org) [really](http://www.debian.org) [urge](http://www.freebsd.org) [you](http://www.openbsd.org) [to](http://www.dragonflybsd.org) [try](http://www.opensuse.org) [Free](http://fedora.redhat.com) [operating](http://www.freespire.org) [systems](http://www.mandriva.com).

It’s not like there aren’t any.
