about me

John M is a Linux fan in Lowell, MA.

I work at at a local company writing software. I fool around with Free and Open Source software for fun.

I am an avid user.


In another round of the always entertaining game of spot the Free Software, comes a recent sighting of KDE in Primetime television :-). On NBC's new show "Heroes" early in the episode one of the characters is using her laptop which, as any super-powered stripper mom's laptop would, runs KDE.

I have screenshots (sorry about the size) to prove it too :-). You can clearly see the K-button in the lower left hand side of the screen in the first shot and the kopete icon is also visible in her chat window. I kinda think I recognize the windeco too, but the titlebar seems mostly oscured in all the scenes.

EDIT: Page was loading too slowly with the pics inline. Made 'em into links.
