Antifeatures are a way to describe a particular practice made possible by locked down technologies. Antifeatures, as I describe them, are functionality (i.e., "features) that a technology developer will charge users not to include. You can read my short article on the topicpublished in the FSF bulletin in 2007] for a series of examples and a more in-depth description.

One thing I want to do is put together as large a collection of these antifeatures as possible to use in a talk, a paper, or maybe even a book!

Add Yours

Feel free to add your own ideas for antifeatures to this page so I can collect them and use them in an upcoming talk, paper, or maybe even a book!

You can use the following template:


Change this paragraph so that it includes the details of your Antifeatures and any [ links].
