Default So Close Movie

What particular OS did the computers in the So Close movie use? I'm wondering if there is really such OS like that.

a lot of movies hire graphic designers to create unique visuals. it propbably isn't real like the OS in the "minority report". is 'so close' any good? i never heard of it, but i love movies

/\ what he said. It's just special effects man. Though you can make Linux look like any OS you want with enough patience and a good graphics program.

So Close is a very good movie for me though it's a Japanese one (i think). Anyway, can your really customize the graphics of the whole Linux OS?

Yes, Open Source is a wonderful thing.......
There was actually one recent movie that actually had a real hacking part....I'm pretty sure it was X2. the movie, she was using a Unix interface to supersede the root account.
Pretty nifty....
