    I ran into that last night, and yeah, I was fooled!

    Gotta say whoever put it together did an excellent job.

    Interesting concept, though. Not sure if it would be good or bad.

    The funny thing about Google's April Fool's joke... Microsoft apparently has a patent on something like that. (Use of Kinect to accept sign language input in a computer).

    Saw it too, and they had me going for about 10 seconds. Unfortunately, it had alot of people going for alot longer. Which to me was even more suprising how bent out of shape certain people were.

    Yeah, I can see Arch Linux devs working with Debian and Suse devs. The distributions are wholly custom built and managed operating systems with completely different scripts, toolsets, system required software, and overall purpose. All the effort in the world couldn't make them compatible enough to do what was suggested. Which is a really, really good thing for everyone involved. Diversity provides a benefit only.
    ...Does anybody else feel like Congress simply bailed themselves out? Isn't that what they really mean by a bailout?
