Favourite OS
IRIX 6.5.22
A few weeks ago I was up late watching GoldenEye on WGN -- one of the best James Bond films by the way, up there with Goldfinger and Casino Royale -- and out of the corner of my eye I notice something on a computer monitor as Trevelyan's base is exploding. I thought I saw it, but I wasn't sure. So I go to my closet and get out the GoldenEye DVD and put it in the DVD player. In past viewings of GoldenEye I had noticed the other IBM references: all the computer monitors have large IBM logos on them, Q's laptop is an IBM, and Natalya goes into a computer store with an IBM sign to demo an "IBM compatible" computer.
This viewing though was the first time I noticed the OS/2 Warp logo on a computer screen (see below).

I just found it interesting and didn't know of anyone else had noticed or caught it. Although, I'm sure that I'm not the first person to ever notice it.

I never caught any of that, I'll agree with you that it's possibly the best James Bond film though. One of my favorites anyway.

With IBM product placement in GoldenEye, IBM probably told them to use IBM's OS. Besides, GoldenEye was released in 1995, meaning that Windows 95 was either not out yet or was just out, so basically it was either OS/2 Warp or Windows 3.1.
