Tech journalists begin work on incompatible Linux

Author: JT Smith

The humor site Segfault manages to poke fun at tech reporters (gasp!) and Linux at the same time: "A team of journalists has set out to make Linux incompatible with itself. Rebuffed throughout
the ages by countless failed predictions of kernel forks, these mavericks have decided to take
the code into their own hands. Called 'Windix' for maximum brand confusion, the
pundit-approved kernel will be subtly but definitively incompatible with the current Linux

'It's time to stop talking about whether Linux will fork and what will happen if it does,' said
one ZDNet reporter. 'It's time for action. And Windix is that thing.' "
