Visions of the Future

Quite clearly spotted some UNIX/Linux desktops on various workstations, around 12 minutes into this program on BBC Four. It's a very interesting series actually, well worth watching. It looks like either old KDE desktop or maybe XFCE, it's hard to tell, any ideas readers?

Update: Looks like it's actually a CDE desktop, as Red Hat was the only distro to come with CDE a long time ago, before settling on Gnome, so it is most likely running on Solaris, as seen here. Thanks to Myles for recognizing CDE!


Synopsis of this episode from

"The Biotech Revolution: Professor Michio Kaku looks at the revolution in biotechnology. Advances promise unprecedented health benefits and increased lifespans, but raise the spectre of uncontrolled human genetic engineering and the possibility of a world divided by genetic apartheid."
