Friends don't let friends use Windows 8

by libby Contributions Published on Apr 12, 2013 12:40 PM
Sometimes, proprietary software actually helps us fight for freedom. Windows 8 is so bad it's almost funny--it's not only proprietary software full of spyware and security vulnerabilities, but it's also confusing for would-be users. Lucky for us, Microsoft's spectacular failure is the perfect time to help people switch to free software.

Today, we're launching a new infographic to encourage everyone to close Windows and open the door to software freedom. Windows 8 is so ripe for parody, we just couldn't resist. Check it out:

Upgrading to free software can be daunting for some people. That's why we need you, the free software experts, to lend a helping hand.

Take our pledge to help a friend or family member upgrade from Windows

Then, share this infographic with every Windows user you know. When your friends or family see the infographic and want to switch, set a date to help them do it. You'd be surprised what a difference a few hours of your time can make in someone else's life.

So, what are you waiting for? Take the pledge and liberate someone from Microsoft's shackles today.
