The Free Software Foundation (FSF) has publicly requested Microsoft to assign their source code Windows 7 shortly after the end of support of the operating system of 2009 on January 14 and it seems the team is ready for the next move.
"THE Microsoft can open Windows. They have all the necessary legal rights or can acquire them. If they choose to do so, it's up to them, ”says the Free Software Foundation.
"We are ready to give them all the help we can. "All they have to do is ask us." continues the team.
"In recent weeks, we have received the message that thousands of people around the world want to open Windows."
OR Microsoft apparently did not respond to the request for the source code of Windows 7, but it should do it anyway, says the Free Software Foundation, as its CEO Microsoft constantly states how important the open source world is.
"We want them to show how much they love the open source software they mention in their ad."
"If they really love free software, they have the opportunity to show it to the world. "We hope they do not just use the free software development model as a marketing tool to trick us into thinking we are free," the FSF said.
We should mention that it can Windows 7 has reached the end of support, but the Microsoft continues to offer customized support to companies that pay for it. Thus the Microsoft will continue to release updates for another three years, so you can forget about the FSF idea.
Also the opening of the code of Windows 7 It may not be a good idea if parts of it are contained in Windows 10.
