April Fools 2005

April 1, 2005

{cs.r.title}






The first of April is when we celebrate April Fools day. As the Wikipedia entry explains, this is is a day when "Many media organizations have either unwittingly or deliberately propagated hoaxes on April Fools Day. Even normally serious news media consider April Fools Day hoaxes fair game, and spotting them has become an annual pastime. The advent of the internet as a worldwide communications medium has also assisted the pranksters in their work."

We had a little fun on the front page with simple stories about open sourcing Duke and requiring all JCP members to exclusively use Solaris. Use the feedback below to submit your April Fools story. We just ask that you refrain from being mean, strive for plausability, and spread a little humor.
