When Linux Goes Bad at 10,000 Feet
It’s easy to make fun of Microsoft products when they crash for no reason, you know the famous BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death)… What about a Wild Crash of a Linux System at 10,000 feet?
Yesterday as I was flying back from Seattle and enjoying the in-flight video program I had the pleasure of witnessing several system crashes that apparently were fixed after several reboot (2).
Pretty scary to see a basic in-flight VOD system crash that easily, even on a plane. I only hope that other sensitive systems are running on more stable and secure OS like Unix (FreeBSD) and not your average Linux Distro.
PS: Sorry for the crappy quality of my pictures, but the iPhone camera module is far from the best I’ve seen!
