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

Ubuntu GNU/Linux in the Background at 22:09 on Home Makeover
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 hulu.com 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.


Yep.
