  • The basic idea...

    "The basic idea behind open source is very simple. When programmers on the Internet can read, redistribute, and modify the source for a piece of software, it evolves. People improve it, people adapt it, people fix bugs. And this can happen at a speed that, if one is used to the slow pace of conventional software development, seems astonishing...
    ...The Open Source pages exist to make this case to the commercial world."    - Introduction to Open Source - www.opensource.org

    Details: Fortune

    market download Fortune
    Fortune is a pretend Android port of the satirical joke application fortune run in Console (text prompt) on Unix-like (BSD, Linux) systems.

    (This is a collection of jokes, this is not an "application"). Fortune is available in ENGLISH ONLY.

    This "port" contains 12,521(!) fortunes from the standard FreeBSD library, 2,480 from the "offensive" FreeBSD library (note: can be extremely offensive, not made by me and read at your own risk), and 3,517 fortunes from OpenBSD.

    Also included is a "port" of the GRUB boot-loader and a fully authentic replication of Windows XP!

    FYI, the application is supposed to be all text. Don't expect a "nicer" layout; just be happy you don't have to actually type the command :).

    -----

    For those who don't know, the fortune application would give a random, comedic message every time the user logged into the system.
