    Its a joke site. Just not real obvious.

    One of many tip offs is the last paragraph in the center table.

    MS Linux is released under the provisions of the Gates Private License, which means you can freely use this Software on a single machine without warranty after having paid the purchase price and annual renewal fees.
    or this one

    There is only one example of its joke nature.

    Yes, but so is speeding in your car. I wouldn't expect the site to stay up as is for very long.
