Well, Unix or some variant has been around since the Sixties at least. The Unix interface has been cloned many times over.
I'd settle for some Tux product placement. How many times have we seen people using an Apple computer in tv shows or movies? Most of the characters depicted using Apple products represent people who would never use Apple in normal life. (cops, teenagers, waitrons, nurses, doctors)
it's kind of a dumb post but I did it on a whim for fun. I got the idea from the linux action show where Chris announces a product that is using linux. And as a twist, to include fictional technology that would be cool if it were using linux/unix like HAL from 2001 Space Odyssey.
Yes, we do. Ubuntu users will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.
Their closest but like microcoughed-winblow$ plus ma¢ users I don't think they'll all catchup to warp speeds and be so lucky. I guess if you look at it from the Borg's perspective bondage is freedom tho I don't see the relation. I would say the others are Borg and Linux is true freedom.
I'm sad to say seems most of GNU\Linuces (outside of the enterprise) advertisement ends with us but we are growing...

All the ships in Star Wars (especially the one Darth Vader is in). Don't think they could be using any other software to coordinate all that mass of hardware complexity (let alone measure all the fuel temperatures, molecular structures, etc). Chubaca would freak out if there was anything Windows in his cockpit.
