I’ll stump up a review at some point.
My evil little eyes – always looking out for “film” uses of computer – noted that MI6 appear to use Linux. What with the film being choc-full of product placement (and jolly ol’ Branson turning up in yet another cameo), couldn’t Microsoft have stumped up some cash for a product placement?
In Casino Royale, there’s a great scene which goes:
Vesper: Nice watch… Rolex?
Bond: No, Omega.
Surely to God, I asked my chum Clare, an Agent in the Evil Empire, there has to be a Bill-sponsored equivalent in the next film?
Bond: Q, I hope that my top secret files will be stored securely. Preferably within an OS that allows everyone, from Novice to Computer Genius to get the most power and enjoyment from their desktop or laptop computer. I hear Linux is quite handy these days.
Q: Nonsense Bond, Vista’s where it’s at. And with all the backoffice functions running on Longhorn Server, we’re impregnable to any threat. Pah! Those Linux advocates! Tofu-eating, sandal wearing, beardy tree huggers to a man!
Bond: Ah, dangerous communists you mean?
