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.

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

The menu in the second image looks like either Motif or possibly CDE.

from the tiny images
it could be any theme that is dark with a blue outline and letters

the studios do NOT use or make WORKING graphics

they are only a video that the actors mimic to use

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!

Someone answered on Yahoo Questions repeated what is here; that it is most likely not a real OS. But they did give links to skins for Gnome and KDE to make it look like the OS used in the movie.

The answer can be seen at: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/in...8035652AAbpmQe

And the skins can be found at:

Gnome: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.p...14&forumpage=0
KDE: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php...?content=66714

Neither of the skins have been updated since 2007 so no guarantees that they are of any use - unless you want to improve them maybe.
