Nice article in the New York Times on Virgin's Linux-based in-flight system. Maybe they can get some open source volunteers to fix all of the bugs. Notable quotes:
"She asked the flight attendant to reset her terminal, but that actually made the problem worse. Every 10 seconds for the last four hours of the flight, a small graphical box popped up on her screen that unhelpfully said: “Fork failed: error 12. Can not allocate memory.”
Is this related to the food service? Here's another good one:
"The header on the message declared, “Airplay Error” – which in my opinion is a little too close to “Airplane Error.”
Well, at least Virgin saved a bunch of money because the software was free. Nice.
