    Its a Forkbomb.

    it turns your linux into Windows
    </windows bash off>

    Ok, but lets stop being silly.
    It crashes the system as it keeps spawning..

    lol hahaha that's great But it seems like the problem is solved anyways, not sure why for those 24 hours it had so many issues. As for new users suggesting formatting, please don't, ever In most cases a format is unnecessary and it's the bone heads at places like Best Buy who immediately say "FORMAT!", that's not the "go to solution" for Linux....although I can admit I do it frequently but that's just for selfish reasons haha

    That's kind of elegant but I prefer the perl one

    Code:
    fork while fork
    zen coding
