    Job Offer

    Found this offer through Hacker News:

    Budget: $20-100

    Description:
    I need someone to program me a new OS (Operasting System) that looks different than Ms Windows XP etc. but has the same style.
    It does not need to run on a mac but all the other PCs. It's supposed to have a stylish look with clear edges etc.
    And ITS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE JUST A REDESIGNED WINDOWS as I'm going to sell that operating system later on.

    These are some important points :

    It should have ALL THE FEATURES that Windows Xp Professional has.
    ALL the files that run on Windows XP ust also run on the BlueOrb OS.
    It must have a very user-friendly interface (like MS WINDOWS XP)
    When it gets Installed, the user needs to insert a serial number.
    It HAS to be HACKER SAFE!
    It must be quick and good looking.
    Anyone up for it?

    I think he/she is missing a little more than a few zeros... I think the car engine is on but nobody is behind the wheel The lights are on but there most certainly isnt anybody home!

    I might do it and I will ensure it is not like XP,
    I will ensure it should have ALL THE FEATURES that Windows Xp Professional has.
    ALL the files that run on Windows XP must also run on the BlueOrb OS.
    I will make is so it has a very user-friendly interface (like MS WINDOWS XP). that looks different than Ms Windows XP etc. but has the same style.

    I am going to call it:
    ! WINDOWS XP
    Regards,

    Was the guy really serious or could he have just made things up for some fun?
