Linux in-flight entertainment

Linux entertainment LCD touch screen in every headrest of a Song airline 757.I traveled to Phoenix this week to give a BACnet and Lighting Applications presentation to the NEMA JSC on DALI. I flew there aboard a Song Airlines 757. During the powerup sequence for the plane, all the passengers were greeted with the image of Tux and the Linux boot sequence as the in-flight entertainment system in each headrest initialized. The touch panel color LCD screens provided games, movies, music, flight information, and satellite television. During the 3 hour flight, I watched Fox News, Mythbusters on Discovery, TLC, and Sunday night football. I also listened to some Ramones and The Smiths. I played trivia with other passengers – I came in 3rd place out of 3 players. I normally dread longer flights, but having satellite TV and Linux serving up entertainment really made the trip go by quickly.

I write software for a living. So, I dedicated some web space for some stuff that I have worked on. I mostly write embedded C for PC based controllers, but I have dabbled in a few other areas as well.
