    I agree it is really bad, but i guess it's just them playin around trying to get us a better linux (that's if they are actually doing it)

    though as jabou said last, if they've removed it from the site, then..... maybe it was just a very elaborate april fools. Who knows...... apart from the guys at gentoo.

    Microsoft itself ships its NT-based products with subsystems for Win32 (the most evolved), POSIX (a very minimal and rather useless implementation), OS/2 (even less useful than their POSIX subsystem), DOS and Win16 (also known as Windows-on-Windows [WOW]).

    POSIX useless... Yeah, right!
    jab, it claims that the MS inplementation of NT with POSIX is useless.

    yeah, i thought too they meant POSIX in general. Actually, it could be a good idea if MSh** wasn't proprietary or if at least they would collaborate to some extent, and the very least would be if their applications, programs and protocols were built on well-known and much-used standards...

    Well, if you look at the front-page now, the prof has come:
    Code:
    A relief to some, hardly suprising to anyone: GeNToo, the Portage spinoff for the NT kernel, was nothing but an April Fool's joke -- albeit a very well thought-out one. The various pranks played on users and fellow developers open this week's Gentoo Weekly Newsletter!
