If Linux is to be considered a mainstream desktop operating system, Ubuntu is its most likely vessel. But nothing could have prepared me to actually see the operating system on the screen in the movie Nobody, where version 18.04, codenamed Bionic Beaver, appeared on the screen for a brief few seconds.
Bob Odenkirk’s excellent action movie is made all the better for the fact that it may be the first placement of a bog-standard Linux interface in a mainstream film, well ever. (The SGI-friendly Jurassic Park
beat it out for standard Unix by about 28 years, but still.)
And if they’re not Apple, they’re often fake. And those fake computer interfaces, I hear, are often skinned versions of Linux.
