Yeah! Yeah!...it'll be called "ActiveBSD"...
I have a cartoonist friend who can sketch up some nifty characters for the
install script (we are working on a more user-friendly install script
right?). I'm thinking that a macarena-ing stapler would be a great help
for those FDISK newbies.
Which reminds me...with our newly harvested IPO cash, we could license some
Elvis tunes to play while it installs the packages. People love
Elvis. It's a sure thing.
And all that $$$ will buy a suh-weet pad down in the Caymans for all of our
newly graduated frat-boy developers to go to work. And Theo can finally
have the corporate jet he's been dreaming about (we'll get one just like
the picture hanging over his monitor). BUT.....I need at least 4 million
for a little side project a friend of mine always used to joke about--an
Operating System entirely written in the Easytrieve language. I've always
wanted to be a project manager, and marketing said that such native support
of Easytrieve will be sure to snag more market share from that SQL company
(which is such a fly-by-night operation I can't even find SQL in the phone
Oh...and vi? Has to go. We'll replace it with a speech recognition front
end that will automatically configure your system when you say something
like "make my CDROM work" and "Help! that little bubble at the top of my
lavalamp won't melt!"
I'm not a developer, but perhaps I can make a contribution to the
cause. I've registered "activebsd.com", which I will set up as a referral
point for anyone who ever ever troubles the list with long painful threads
like this one. We can put every single suggestion whose rationale is "more
end users" there, and avoid another long Monday inbox.
