ReactOS "During his visit to the school, President Medvedev spoke with the school's students, including [ReactOS'] Marat Karatov. Marat made a short presentation of the latest build of ReactOS, including system boot up and running a few Windows-compatible applications. During conversation with the president, Marat said that the OS was ready approximately for 80% of real world usage and that roughly one million euros would be needed to complete its development within a year. 'This is an interesting project indeed', was President Medvedev's response."

Actually, was it the first internet meme? I know I saw it long before the word meme was repurposed for the internet.

It is from before the internet, but still the internet made a meme out of it, and it it's pretty dumb

I don't think it can properly be called an "Internet meme" at all - I have not noticed an upswing in the use of 'In Soviet Russia' jokes due to the internet, except in isolated cases like the fact that it became the thing to do on Slashdot for a while. It was always the sort of thing that spread virally from person to person and back again, in gentle waves.

Internet is more than 40 years old so I doubt its older.
