popel - satirical open source

04 March 2017

I’m a Linux user and since some early Debian and SUSE versions in the late 90s, went Mac for a decade before returning in 2015 and I don’t regret that. A few months ago a friend show me sl, a satirical piece of software for those typing ls wrong too often. My two-year-old also loves sl, so watch the youtube video if you don’t have a linux: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BPMd2dsSVR0

Then another friend showed me gti, vital for git users. That friend isn’t a fan of the VW GTI like myself so he created an Opel variation which of course was rejected by the good developer of gti. I mean Opel doesn’t even look like git.

But do not despiar, this is open source after all and there’s a piece of software with opel in it’s name: sopel a python IRC but and I created and cleaned up the Opel code aptly named Popel.

It doesn’t have to be a big editor or desktop manager, every open source software and adapt and be born as something new.
