Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

SO I JUST WANT TO KNOW WHAT OPARATING SYSTEM (BAD GUY THOMAS GABROL AND HIS TEAM USED) IN THAT FILM????
Live Free or Die Hard was about computers and not Bruce Willis shooting people?!?
Bear in mind OP that it was a movie and they can do anything they want; for instance if they thought it would look cool to have some animated screen saver or show high tech screens in any form they chose, then they just do that and they don't worry about the OS.
As yooy said, you might want to post a screen shot related to what you're asking.
Distribution: Slackware has beern Main OpSys for decades while testing others to keep up
While it is true movies often show fictional software (some REALLY laughable) The Matrix featured Linux. Trinity can clearly be seen using "nmap" to hack into The Matrix... but then she's hardcore smexy like that. :P
Basically most Linuces can do that... microcoughed-winblow$ think ma¢$ too have one window manager, Linux has many++, windoze you can pay for some skins++ and tweaks even occasionally find free insecure ones, Linux comes with unlimited options and free licensing to change anything!
