centos in a scientific airplane


it took me days to find back that photo from an old computer

as i tried to find it out, looks like that pic is not available on the internet anymore (1 more time!)

i was thinking it was a kind of unix-like, as solaris or other type of specific system

with the wallpaper i finally found it's a centos system, used for scientific-purposes into a non-IT department, of a public-sector organization.
https://wiki.centos.org/ArtWork(2f)M...f)CentOS5.html

that one is focused in the weather calculation process. It's called Safire, with several little planes, using, in appearance, several systems (including windows etc).
https://www.safire.fr/en

i was thinking i was going to find a unix (non linux/win/mac) computer for end-users in a non-IT related usage.
havent found it yet

img is too large to be uploaded using the linuxquestions hosting, so here are links :

Plenty of big computer companies have supplied systems for many non commercial uses.

I worked on a system in the Navy that took maybe 3 hours to boot into HP Basic. You would not believe what it was used for.

I can't. Might still be in use.

We would actually start the bootup a day out just to be sure.
