Have a look at this post. But, you might want to be sitting down while you read it. Don't forget to read the replies too.. this is good stuff.

No way. That has got to be a joke. Nobody can really be that stupid.

My favourite bit of the page was this:
"Hi. I can do this for you next week, when I plan on taking a break from a nonotech based / atomic fission driven search engine thats going to make larry page wet his pants. 6 days to code, 1 to rest. It will be written from scratch and completely original in design, so don't worry about copyright bs. I plan to write the entire OS in C, and blindfolded, if its all the same to you. 100% secure will not be a problem either...In fact the OS will be designed to leverage jedi mind tricks to kill anyone that even thinks about breaking in. (i was thinking maybe make them chop off their feet and jump up and down until their empty would be fair). Anyways, I'm gonna smoke some more crack, maybe you should do the same. Thanks!"
Says it all no? That has to be a joke.

This is maybe funny but obviously not serious. You should post it to backyard, they can enjoy this kind of crap.

Sigh, might as well get the money to fund developers working on Windows-Linux interoperability (OpenOffice, GNOME, Mozilla foundations... i'm sure they'd appreciate it) and get licensing to distribute it (I mean hey, Novell does it). This just reeks of cluelessness. Might be fun if it turns up on DailyWTF years later. :D

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linux mentions study: Debian 2.2 has 55 millions lines of code which would cost $1.9B (billion, not million) to develop.

Thanks that made my morning. I don't know if the joke itself made me laugh louder or the people thinking they could actually pull it off.
