Slacker trying arch


Quote:
It is with great sadness that I write this message. When we first released Arch Linux 0.7 (Wombat) we were contacted by the Centre for Ethical Treatment of Wombats (CETW). CETW felt that we were somehow hurting wombats worldwide by releasing an "open source project" with the codename Wombat. While we tried to convince them that Arch Linux was a Linux distribution and that no wombats were harmed during the creation of our release, they wouldn't accept it. So they threatened to sue us unless we changed our destructive ways. After much deliberation, we have figured out that we don't actually have enough money to fight them in court. Instead we have chosen to settle outside of court. Part of our settlement is to discontinue the development of Arch Linux. And thus, through a poor choice of naming, Arch Linux is no more. All of the developers would like to thank the community for their support and contributions.
Arch is dead?

Did you read the date the paragraph was posted? You'll kick yourself when you do.

Arch is not dead, it is fully alive and kicking.

I don't get it? It is currently April 2005, right? It was posed only two weeks ago.

The two other posts on April 03, 2005 and April 11, 2005 after that make no mention of arch coming back? I'm confused.

Read the date of the article itself. It's to the right of that particular article's title.

Hint: it's a popular name for the first day in April.
