Fedora Spotted on Secret Service Files @ Nat Geo

Heh, I always get giddy when I see Linux on TV. This time, Fedora's appearance inside a Virtual Machine on a Secret Service owned Mac desktop is not so unexpected. Why? Because we're talking about the division that handles electronic fraud.

Update: Here's a "real" installation of Fedora in the same episode:

And yes, that is XChat.

What's really funny is that the show is apparently sponsored by "Windows 7", of which I've seen none in the first 2 episodes. Most of computers were Macs, and those that were indeed Windows, were XP.

And now imagine the secret service using Windows 8... Hilarious!
