Friends don't let friends use Windows 8

Dear ,
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.
Sincerely, Libby, Zak, John, and the rest of the FSF team
