The FSF has created a website, Windows 7 Sins, that lists the reasons why Windows 7 is evil.

The site makes the usual anti-Microsoft arguments – Monopoly, Standards, Lock In and Privacy. Although almost from the day Microsoft was incorporated it has carried out some less than wholesome activities, its products do work very well and Windows 7 is a great example of how Microsoft occasionally does make fantastic products.
As we’ve seen in the mobile and browser space, if better products become available like the iPhone and Firefox then monopolies can be broken down very quickly. Rather than constantly knocking Microsoft, I wish bodies like the FSF would seriously consider what a world without Windows would look like. Yes, Linux is making great strides but at the moment corporates and individuals want hassle-free mass market software, and Linux just can’t deliver that yet.
