No idea if it's an April Fool Joke, as I can't download the whole 9 Meg file. It's not very funny, if it is, but when does that stop April Fool jokers?

maybe it's kosha.. [staff]nahh...[/staff]

Common sense should tell anyone that since this file is only 9 megs that it's a hoax. The LHA is also corrupted.

Unless Java has been ported to AmigaOS 4.0 it is a hoax. Besides, the PC version is a much larger archive even without Java included.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

The archive isn't corrupted, and isn't an archive at all...it's a picture...

It's a picture? Is it? Well they got that wrong too.. Who opens a .lha file with Mulitview, there's jokes, there's unfunny jokes and theres downrigth wastes of peoples time (and possibly money if they're still on pay on demand dial-up).

Guess which one this is? and it's not funny.

In fact lets say it took me 20 Minutes to download this twice, my time has a value, that's why I'm payed per Hour at work, so working that out at the wages I'm on, that's er.. about 45p these eiojts owe me.

In fact I got a bit bored and downloaded it again, it's a picture of a black screen with some pink swirly stuff at the bottom.

At least hello.jpg had a bit of cheek (!) to it, I think I can officaly pronounce this as being the worst April Fools joke, that I've ever "fallen" for.

That's worst meaning unfunny, un-interesting and just generally a bit rubbish.

Come on guys. Surely no-one's that stupid as to think the OO is going to get an OS4 release on April Fools day?
