PotatOS runs Linux

http://www.bbspot.com/news/2008/12/linux-on-a-potato.html

Is this real, or just a really good joke that didn't happen on April Fool's day? I'd love for it to be real, except...PUPPIES!? And Ponies too!?
10 bucks says my mouse STILL won't work correctly on this distro.

...also, wouldn't you always be on root with it? I got crucified last time I asked how to default to root on login.

LOA (Linux On Anything) was the group that first installed Linux on a Shetland pony in 2003, but growing competition from other hacker groups have shut them out in the past five years.

“We were close to being the first with Linux on a cracker, but those jerks from Norway beat us out,” said Piest.


I can't wait till they get linux running on a real gnu! Imagine the POWER!!!
