Conversations I figured I'd share a post I just made to here. Let's not bash each other's OSes, but have some fun. In "The Sarah Jane Adventures" series, she has both a desktop computer, which has no name, and "Mr. Smith" which is an... err... somewhat more elaborate rig:

Does anyone recognize the OS/GUI which Sarah Jane (and Rose in "The Stolen Earth") uses? It doesn't look like Windows. It doesn't look like MacOS X. It does not look like Linux or *BSD running KDE, Gnome, E, or any other DE or WM with which I am familiar. It does look a bit like RISC OS. But it's not that either. Yeah, it's probably something invented by the CGI team which is not encumbered by patents, copyrights, trade secrets, or trademarks. But it is fun to speculate. The gods only know what Mr. Smith runs. Probably some some future variant of Plan9. ;-)
