This webpage can run in linux





  • Finally, they thought of those who can't afford a real browser.



  • It also seems that Mastercard is incompatible with a small percentage of the currently available browsers.



  •  Maybe it means they finally have come up with some sort of browser hijack/drive-by download/malware that works in Linux, too!



  • What, didn't you know recent versions of the Linux kernel have a web browser built into them?

    Sure... it's called telnet! Windows has it too.

    What, you use a browser for going on the web? I just telnet on port 80 for a server and manually Get, post and cookie! it gets a bit card remembering the last one though. I especially like going to these forums, since CB's HTML looks a bit like a fractal of horror.

    Kidding besides, I very much doubt that telnet is a part of either the windows or the linux kernel. I think it's no different in a distro than firefox in the way that it's just an executable that the manifacturer supplied.

    That was my point.  Telnet isn't a part of any kernel and the "joke" doesn't even really make sense. 



  • I was bored at work and made a stupid joke. Get over it.



  • Maybe they think all Linux users use Dillo.

    Wait, what? IE, Firefox, Opera, and Google Chrome -- the main browsers -- are all free as in beer, as is telnet/netcat, which is what "real programmers" would use.

    You obviously don't get sarcasm so I shal explain it to you:

    Mastercard is a web browser developed by Shneaky Labs which offers features such as on-the-go browsing built right into a credit-card-like computer. After about two years of use some hackers figured out how to scan the unique serial number from the unsecure hard drive and hack into Shneaky's purchasing systems and began using these methods to send bills to clients later so that clients can use their Mastercard browsers sort-of like credit cards. The method became so popular that Shneaky almost ran American Express out of business with quotes like "The American Express Logo is neither American nor Express!"

    Billy Timbersom at Shneaky Labs decided that the management were a bunch of stupid monkeys (after having dodged some projectile poop at a meeting) and split off to form a better refined mobile web browser. However due to hardware difficulties his browser failed and was later converted by Linus Travis into the linux kernel, but the legacy lives on.

    The great developers of this site have made sure that Mr. Timbersom's legacy lives on by supporting the Linux Web Browser, A.K.A. the linux kernel.

     

    Now that you understand sarcasm, you may go forth and bash!
