PCLinuxOS stars in Heroes

Filed under
Linux

Seems our beloved PCLOS is now the preferred operating system of superheros everywhere as well. As seen in this screenshot, PCLOS is finding its way onto desktops and laptops everywhere - even Hollywood.

It was spotted almost 23 minutes into the 13th episode (originally aired January 29, 2007), The Fix, as Zach & Claire scour online newspapers looking for clues to Claire's real parents.

re: not the first time

Cool huh? I've seen kde in a few other screenshots for other shows & movies too.

re: Heros

Curious to what in that screen cap shows it's PCLinuxOS?

re: Heros

Well, I think it was just an overall impression at first. But if you blow up the menu start button, you can tell it's a pclos pinwheel as used in .93.

But zoom in even closer...

OMG! They're really using PCignignoktOS!

re: But zoom in even closer...

teehee! I think, omg, you're right!

  • Ten amazing Linux games you can play without WINE
    Those of us who have taken up the mantle of a Linux gamer know that our path is rarely easy. For a long time, few games were released for our chosen platform. Those that were shipped riddled with bugs, compatibility issues and rarely worked out of the box. Getting games to work require using WINE and deeply complex almost arcane workarounds to force windows games to work on our quirky systems. Unfortunately, games rarely worked well and usually required hours of complex tweaking in order to get them to function properly. To top this all of, there were graphics driver problems, optimization issues, peripherals rarely worked out of the box and our lives were generally difficult.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 Review: Finally, an Android tablet built with enterprise users in mind

Show me an Android tablet and I'll show you a device that has yet to live up to its full potential. Google's Play Store lacks a wide selection of apps that support a tablet's larger display, with most apps only expanding the phone interface, in turn looking horrible on the smaller screen. In addition to the lack of quality apps, Android tablets have lacked key accessories such as a keyboard. For the most part, Android tablets have been relegated to a device used to catch up on Netflix or to entertain kids with games. Read more
