Sure, I'll have it done by Friday!

GetACoder.com is an outsourcing site that allows people to post their job specs, browse existing jobs, submit bids, and ultimately, arrange contracted work on a pay-for-job basis rather than pay by the hour. As with most such sites, you can expect to see a few really crazy posts there... but this one, I THINK, is not deliberately a joke.

The budget range offered is $20-100. What's he asking for? Uhh, not much. Just... a complete operating system, with all the features of XP Pro, able to run everything that XP will run, have as user-friendly an interface as XP, but not be XP. And it has to be quick. Oh, and it has to be (emphasis his) HACKER SAFE! Well, I guess that guarantees that it won't be XP.

I had to go look at the date when this was posted, but alas, no such luck - it was posted Aug 31st, 2008. Somehow, I doubt he's going to get an offer within his budget range... he did get one bid for $999,999, but it seems that scheme fell through.

Maybe we should all chip in to get him a bottle of Wine.

Tomorrow's Operasting [sic] System, BlueOrb!

This must be the first time the Rosuav has advocated the consumption of naughty alcoholic liquors.
