Wow. This guy isn't asking for much.
1 coder, a Windows XP clone, and then the rights to sell your creation.





This guy is nuts.


EDIT: How much do you guys want to bet that this guy is thinking this OS will take a few eeks to make?

Hmm, this choice seems difficult.

Work for Microsoft and make TONS of money helping to build an operating system over a few years,

or.....

Create an operating system from scratch in days/weeks and have it compatible with everything Windows can handle, make it superior to any other operating system in terms or safety and ease-of-use and sell it to one guy who is just going to turn around and sell it for more later.....

all for $100....if that.

<<insert sarcastic comment here>> :P

In three weeks if you did copy windows your version would have lots of bugs. Eg your display driver crashed please do the following: We are sorry but we currently don't have a solution to this problem. Somehow I bet the guy posting it was joking.

He seemed to be serious about it. I don't think he joked LOL. I just think he's a guy who has no idea on what programming is and how big and complex current oses are.
LOL

He obviously has a deep insight in operating systems because he knows about HACKERS. HACKERS are stealth, HACKERS never give up, HACKERS never get caught. Since he knows about HACKERS, he knows about world domination. Since he knows about world domination, you better hide your ass.

Check the previous posts date before posting... or at least check how far down the page you had to go to bump it.
