As you know, the first of April is the date of the jokes in the Anglo world , a day where the occurrence most successful search on the pages, virtual or not, media communication, partnerships, communities … And the environment of free software and Linux is no exception.
me start by saying that I hope no muss anything to anyone because they are usually published first real crazy that nobody in their right mind would think, secondly, because grace is catch them on the fly, share and comment , since many of these jokes will disappeared morning (some occupy the home pages of well-known projects, of which I am going to speak next, and you can not keep something like that).
If in any case prefer the surprise, you know that from the next paragraph is, as we say in geek argot, spoilers , so it is as simple as not reading further. You are warned;)
Now, half start, poque me who is going to start this article, but to see if you are lucky and you Terminais , because here in Spain are exactly 9 am, Europe is newly built and America are still asleep, so it is too early to encontar many of the jokes that are forthcoming. Yet I have caught four risers.
The former have been iTWire (Nismrc passed me the note) with the news that Linux will change the license to BSD … Anyway. We even remember how Paris Hilton joined the project in 2005, to the fury of Richard Stallman. Little joke, but I do not blame them when it failed (it is very difficult to brew something today).
my surprise encounter with The Canterbury Project, a new distribution born of the union of Arch Linux, Debian, Gentoo and openSUSE. The features that make this new system are:
As malleable as Gentoo
Wed In the links you have all the information in this “new” and all will make you smile, but I want to stress especially Curran has stuck people openSUSE , changing the front page of its website, in that menu … Very good!
not miss the joke OMG! Ubuntu!, Not that I am telling you is that win Live . Or the GNOME Foundation, which I fear has fallen the first review of the previous article, because if GNOME 3 is delayed until September … forget it;)
And here I come. This is where I urge you, as it did with the Grey Company Aragorn, to if you meet a good little joke around (for Linux and Co., of course), compartáis with the rest in comments (remember not to put more of a full link is eaten by the spam monster).
By the way, special Ubuntu users I do not know if it still works or what, but something is hidden there. Ojito!We
wish you a funny April Fool’s Day
