Is that a Linux Desktop on a DELL?
« on: September 10, 2010, 06:05:17 am »
Tonight was exhibited the Pilot for the new CW series "NIKITA".

I was watching, and suddenly:


Is that a Linux Desktop on a DELL?

And it looks amazingly cool too...

What you guys think?

Yes that is :)

Glad to finally see Gnome getting some TV action... Most of the hackers you see using Linux on TV are using either terminal or KDE

It really does look very nice..........

In the show itself did the show any more screen shots? Were they doing anything with or on the computer during the show? Or was the shot just a quick flash?

Yes, near the end of the episode there are scenes of it working.

I really can't say doing what, it's kind of an e-mail+encrypted IM, doesn't look like any application I know of.

But, what I did notice was how snappy and fast it looked... :)

Well, I think you guys should check it yourselves, not a bad series either...
