Air New Zealand individual on-demand system uses Linux…

I was part way through watching The Incredible Hulk on the flight to New Zealand when my “Individual On-Demand System” crashed and restarted. I watched with geeky pleasure as Linux booted up. I couldn’t tell the exact version, it went too quick, but I saw “Red Hat” in the text and there was a picture of Tux… 🙂

I’m in New Zealand now, chilling out at a mates house for a few days before starting the New Zealand Oracle User Group conference.

Cheers

  1. FWIW, I can add virgin atlantic to the Linux on-board media centres.

    I was somewhat miffed at the number of times I saw the linux boot sequence during the flight to San Francisco.

    I’m sure it’d be more reliable in so-called “upper class” 🙁

    Of course — Linux is only for Steerage passengers. Them up front get Solaris.
