The Ubuntu Unity desktop has been spotted again; this time in the Medaka Box anime series. This is even more product placement for the Ubuntu Unity desktop and the Linux distribution overall. Of course Ubuntu is very popular; it is shown on televison a few times; appearing in the Extreme Makeover television show as well as on the set of Doctor Who. A KDE desktop was spotted in the television series Heroes as well; that was an old Mandrake Linux desktop with the Galaxy theme. Linux is very popular; as outlined in this article; huge blockbuster movies like the Day The Earth stood Still re-make used Linux to render the special effects. http://www.linuxjournal.com/magazine/emphasisthe-day-earth-stood-stillemphasis. In the screenshot from the Anime to the right; you can see that the Nautilus file-manager application is open and there are the three LibreOffice icons on the launcher bar. it is good that Linux is getting more recognition these days; it is a good alternative to the Windows operating system and more secure.
I use Windows sometimes; but I like to have Linux Mint 13 and Ubuntu 12.10 available as well.
