So i figure the only real certainty is that it ain't what it seems. The contradiction kinda supports the idea too.

Maybe it's a Matrix and the OS is a little dodgy.
Question is, is it more likely to be proprietary or FOSS?

And to get back on topic, what would happen to us if it gets rebooted during "some necessary maintenance"? Wink

hmmmm, Some good questions, that do at least include the most horrific of possibilities. But i don't think even they have gotten that far. Besides ... they would have to wait until someone else released an implementation first, in order to acquire it, then call it their own. Though i tend to think that it's probably using a LVM system of soughts.

The Big Bang was the last reboot, and the stars worth keeping were then retrieved from backup. The powers-that-be are currently installing extra storage space faster than the data is growing.
