Open-Source Group Sends Microsoft Blank Hard Drive to Copy Windows 7 Source Code
The Free Software Foundation publicly requested Microsoft to open-source Windows 7 shortly after the 2009 operating system reached the end of support on January 14, and now the group is ready for the next move.
Last week, the FSF mailed Microsoft a blank hard drive which the company should use for copying Windows 7 source code and then sending it back to the organization.
“Microsoft can free Windows. They already have all of the legal rights necessary or the leverage to obtain them. Whether they choose to do so or not is up to them,” the Free Software Foundation explains.
“We’re ready to give them all of the help we can. All they have to do is ask,” the group continues.
