I sure hope this is a joke.  It's horribly non-free, the 3rd point
conflicts with the 2nd point (you can not download the OS components to a
windoze box in order to install them and replace windoze for example)

If this is supposed to be funny, I'm not laughing.  This sort of crap can
and likely will harm us in the long run.

Anticipation is the sweetest form of torture...
