Windows 8: Don’t buy the hype

Windows 8: Don’t buy the hype

Microsoft has shelled out a mind-boggling estimated $1.8* billion to convince the public that it needs Windows 8. Why the record-breaking marketing deluge? Because a slick ad campaign is Microsoft’s best shot at hiding what Windows 8 really is; a faulty product that restricts your freedom, invades your privacy, and controls your data.

Pledge to free your computer today!

Here’s some of the Windows 8 “features” Microsoft won’t tell you about:

  • Restricts freedom: Windows 8 is proprietary software. At its core, it is designed to control you as a user. You can’t modify Windows 8 or see how it is built, which means Microsoft can use its operating system to exploit users and benefit special interests.
  • Invades privacy: Windows 8 includes software that inspects the contents of your hard drive, and Microsoft claims the right to do this without warning. These programs have misleading names like “Windows Genuine Advantage.”
  • Exposes personal data: Windows 8 has a contacts cache that experts fear may store sensitive personal data and make users vulnerable to identity theft.

Microsoft wants to keep you locked in to Windows so that it can take your money, your personal data, and your user freedom. They don’t want you to know that you have a choice of better operating systems; operating systems that respect your freedom. There are tons of free “as in freedom” software operating systems that you can download and install at no cost. And when they’re improved, you can choose whether or not you want to upgrade, without a corporation breathing down your neck.

It is time to upgrade your computer, but not to Windows 8. Pledge to free your computer today!
