Continental In-Flight Entertainment Runs Linux

I'm guessing the cabin crew aren't geeks, but I was mildly entertained to see that the system runs on Linux, with the penguin there for all to see. I couldn't get any photos of the startup messages, as turning on my phone at that point seemed like a bad idea, for so many reasons, but watching the whole process was mildly more entertaining than a game of TuxRacer. The only disappointment came when I got back to Bristol airport and saw that the machine running the baggage carousel screens was behind with its Windows updates. Sigh.
