I already got a free OS from Microsoft that works great. I don't need any of your linux puke shiat.
2002-04-01 11:57:28 AM  
No it won't.
2002-04-01 11:57:51 AM  
The screenshot doesn't really tell you what the OS looks like, either.

Wil Wheaton, Fb-, Santa Clause, THESE PEOPLE DO NOT EXIST, they were made up by the Matrix. I'm getting my jacket from the bedroom and leaving this party, my stomach hurts, < BLeeech ! >
2002-04-01 11:58:36 AM  
That was quite a let down, though the screenshot is pretty cool.
2002-04-01 11:58:43 AM  
Well done as ever, but why doesn't work today?

Can't some other quasi-celebrity make themselves known so every geeky website on the planet can stop kissing Wil's ass already? It's embarassing to watch.

I expected the screenshot to look like the computers on Star trek personally, it looked too much Like Winders

I was actually more jazzed about the Shaolin Soccer screen shot then anything else...

Dammit, the upgrade from Wheaton8 crashed my harddrive.
Expect a lawsuit.
2002-04-01 12:11:21 PM  
cool! where can I get one?
2002-04-01 12:12:32 PM  
I gotta have it.

As for Wheatonix, man, I don't think so.
2002-04-01 12:16:09 PM  
I refuse two post until felt hers ure turned uff.
oh crap

I think it's all hype. WheatoniX is just another corporate ploy to take your money and give you a bug-filled OS. Personally, I'm waiting for the next release of WalkenOS... now THAT'S an OS worth buying.

I would love it if my PC talked to me in Walken's voice. Especially. if it put... pauses. in the oddest. places in the sentence.
2002-04-01 12:18:59 PM  
IckyMettle- no _kidding_.

i HATE april fool's day on the 'net. everyone's SOOOOO farkin' funny.

*waits for tomorrow already*

His site's back up...

"Okay, let's get straight to business: here's the bad news: the entire site has crashed, and we can't figure out why.I don't know when the crash happened, or why, because I was offline all weekend, but I'm working on it. I suppose that if you can read this, it means things are working again"

Then William Farkin' Shatner would sue.

Wheatonix, the gentler laxative.

(From "Chasing Amy"...slightly modified...)
Banky: "Alright, now see this? This is a four-way road, OK? And dead in the center is a crisp, new, hundred dollar bill. Now, at the end of each of these streets are four people, OK? Are you following?"

Holden: "Yeah."

Banky: "Good. Over here, we have Wil Wheaton having a re-occurring role on 'Enterprise'. Down here, we have a man-hating, angry as fark, agenda of rage, bitter dyke. Over here, we have WheatoniX: the next generation OS, and up here the almost-30-something actor who used to have a role on Star Trek: TNG, who's still trying to live off of it.. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first?"

Holden: "What is this supposed to prove?"

Banky: "No, I'm serious. This is a serious exercise. It's like an SAT question. Which one is going to get to the hundred dollar bill first? The re-occurring-role Wheaton, the 30 year old still living off his former role in TNG, WheatoniX, or the Easter bunny?"

Holden: "The man-hating dyke."

Banky: "Good. Why?"

Holden: "I don't know."

Banky: "Because the other three are figments of your farking imagination!"
