April Fool's Jokes.
« on: April 01, 2015, 09:59:05 pm »
Hi

I'm not too much into this tradition, but it seems to be fun to read all the crazy scifi stuff from slashdot as news:
http://slashdot.org/

So, we also need some OS/2 jokes around:
1) Google+: OS/2 Rebound

2) Slashdot: Bill Gates Donates 1M to Open Source OS/2

It is nice to see some humor around.

Regards

Nice. I'm using Google Translate to read it:

How cool - that I may live to see! IBM has announced to release a new OS / 2 version. Under the code name "Ferengi", the system will appear at the end of the year.

The system should have improved hardware support, a pre-loaded and native IBM office, an NT box (compatible with Anwedungen to Win 8.1), completely redesigned multimedia components and a whole new desktop called "TransWarp" with live electronic gadgets, freeform windows, transparencies, etc. , The system should also run on smartphones and tablet computers, as well as Raspberry Pi! There should also be a special Arbanbanduhr is 2 v5 installed on the OS /. For a Drag and Drop enabled PIM is to be developed, which can be fully operated without a mouse. There are rumors that IBM for working on a neural user interface.
