Fortune is a pretend Android port of the satirical joke application fortune run in Console (text prompt) on Unix-like (BSD, Linux) systems.

(This is a collection of jokes, this is not an "application"). Fortune is available in ENGLISH ONLY.

This "port" contains 12,521(!) fortunes from the standard FreeBSD library, 2,480 from the "offensive" FreeBSD library (note: can be extremely offensive, not made by me and read at your own risk), and 3,517 fortunes from OpenBSD.

Also included is a "port" of the GRUB boot-loader and a fully authentic replication of Windows XP!

FYI, the application is supposed to be all text. Don't expect a "nicer" layout; just be happy you don't have to actually type the command :).


For those who don't know, the fortune application would give a random, comedic message every time the user logged into the system.

    This one also features pop up adds! This is a disgust to see what is done with a classic open source project

    Must have for all unix and bsd users! Watch out for the adult ones, can be really bad, but funny. Few lame ones, but expected with 4000+ jokes.
