I think they still use IRIX engines burning some pretty big stack of crays to do many of the special effects. I guess they could have changed over by now.

Joking? If not, look around, you'll see windows computers all over TV.

Theres some really odd stuff around if you watch the right (or is that wrong?) shows.

'Fringe' had a few blatant win7 shots a while ago-

Recently I've seen what looked like gnome 3 on 'Silent Witness'. If anyone cares, I might even be able to dig up a screen shot of the desktop in silent witness.
