Ubuntu on “The Big Bang Theory”

I was watching "The Big Bang Theory" on TV tonight. The show closed tonight with Sheldon sitting on the couch with his Dell XPS Alienware m15x laptop and sighing to himself, "Oh Ubuntu, you are my favorite Linux based operating system."

Big score for Ubuntu & Linux on US prime time television!

Edit: Here's the video on YouTube.

    This was absolutely lame. He would never go for the most noob nix. It would be OpenBSD, I guess. At least Debian or Slackware.

    i suppose that sheldon would use smth with complete controll :) smth like gentoo... with customized kernel of course :D

    It's very clear that it's a TV show. Considering that Ubuntu is a kind of 'Home Edition' of Debian, any person with a PhD would have mostly preferred GNU/Linux in it's original Debian distro, for reasons that should be obvious.

    Tonight is the first time that I've encountered your site Linerd. It is great! Do you have a Facebook group? Page ? I`ll try and keep updated with news from your site!

    I am new to Linux, loving Ubuntu though

      Thanks for the compliment. No, I don't have a page on Facebook page for this site. However, I am on Twitter. Probably the best way to make sure you don't miss any new content is to subscribe by email or subscribe to the RSS feed.

    That wasn't an XPS.

    It was an Alienware m15x special edition: nebula red.

      Thanks for the correction. He used to have a red XPS didn't he? Dell must have decided he needed an upgrade.
