Linux on Film: Supernatural Season 7 Episode 20 (with Felicia Day)
Although Hollywood proudly displays Apple products in 90% of their shows and movies with a middling few points for Microsoft products (such as the TV show "Chuck"), Linux does get a bit of exposure, especially when the producers/directors want to look "technical" and "sophisticated." Today's Linux on Film entry is an unlikely example with the surprisingly endearing Felicia Day using the command line and an obviously skinned Linux distribution in the Supernatural episode "The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo." There are several indications to the use of Linux on this episode with the directories using a Unix forward slash, a few instances of a Linux interface, and pseudo-Unix commands and utilities. Surprisingly, there's a strong evidence Felicia Day's workstation is running a heavily skinned Linux Mint, a very popular Linux distribution.
