What distro are the airline companies using for onboard terminal per seat?


Trivial question but as title says, I'm just curious which distro airline company's entertainment/info systems use. I found a couple of pictures of United Airlines, which clearly shows Linux' penguin but I just can't figure out which distro.

All I can guess is it's neither Ubuntu nor openSUSE (since I've never seen in recent few years of my linux life with them).

Also if anybody can tell which one, then how do you know?

Thanks.

I think the penguin logo appears like this in damn small linux based distros also (one penguin per cpu).

I think they have a custom distro, like all the gaming machines in bars.

The penguin logo is part of the kernel. It appears in any distro that doesn't use a customized bootsplash.

It's impossible to tell which distro they're using.
