Peter Molyneaux Announces New OS

I was feeling left out.

Dammit, I was hoping for a link to “Peter Molyneux’ Desktop Commander.”

There’s only a tech demo which doesn’t bear any resemblance to what the final product will look like.

Well all I can say is that it’s about goddam time. When the OS crashes, we can smack it around.

Now this thread has some potential.

If PM were to actually design an OS for Microsoft, let’s say “Vista”, then:

  1. Deleting files will result in the starvation of some villagers, somewhere. In fact any file operation results in some villagers starving. Somewhere.

  2. If you use IE 7.0’s new “Zoom in on Image” functionality, it automatically adds a worm to any picture.

  3. Reformatting a hard disk involves raising up a burning volcano and setting everything on the drive down into boiling lava.

Programs will have the unfortunate tendency to eat their own core dumps, however.
