Ubuntu GNU/Linux Used by Technologists on Home Makeover Extreme Edition

So my biggest daughter comes to me and says, "Daddy, they're using Ubuntu (GNU/Linux) on (ABC's) Extreme Home Makeover Edition". 

So then we go onto and she points me to the time section where Brent Bushnell the Son of Atari founder Nolan Bushnell is talking about a robot they're making for the show and sure enough - there in the background is a large computer monitor with the unmistakable colors of Ubuntu GNU/Linux as the desktop background.

So apparently they are using Ubuntu GNU/Linux to make the software controls for their Robot on the show. Sweet!

GNU/Linux is the Universal Operating System, even for awesome projects featured on Home Makeover Extreme Edition.
