Well, I kinda was bored on FailNet, and I came up with a idea, FailOS!


It hasnt been completely planned out...


All the info is:

*It will have either KDE or Gnome
*It will be Linux
*It will be for Intel

If Interested, Contact me either:

Please tell me that you are interested for FailOS development


I will develop the website and manage the project.

It will contain Wine by default, most distros don come with Wine preinstalled. only Knoppix, but its a Live Distro.


and

IE4Linux program (Installs IE in Wine)

and a few other things, it is still in Planning, I dont even know which GUI to use....

Very good. Dude, if you want someone to help you with the project you've already got underway then you'd be likely to succeed... but trying to get someone to program your idea is a brave move. I'm sure people would be more inspirated if you were able to show that you had the ability to do this project. If this works, it will be great to watch develop, good work for trying this WildEye001.

Yeah this, and base it off Microsoft Singularity but with the Windows Bob UI and Linux config files.
And replace the branding with a custom one done in MS Paint.

And make it PPC only, that's fail right there.

I volunteer as programmer and live cd programmer and KDE fanboy. I am really good with Paint (I can make straight lines and stuff) and I have a lot of experience with a little thing called MICROSOFT VISUAL BASIC DOTNet so I think I am the man for the job (H)

Edit: FailOS... much like this thread!
