The base OS seems to be OSX, then there's Remote Desktop, VMware, and some terminal program connected to Linux?

From people who believe that CERN's Large Hadron Collider will spawn an Earth-eating black hole. People who have not the slightest grasp of physics.

Except it's not actually remote desktop. Based on the password unlock for the screensaver, it looked like the sales guys' computer was win98, which doesn't have a RD server. Also, remote desktop locks out the person sitting at the computer, so they wouldn't be able to see what you were doing. Remote assistance would, but that's alot more cumbersome. If anything, it's VNC, but I'm pretty sure it's just made up.

I didn't mean the web dude used RDP to get to the other guy's desktop. If you look closer when he switch between apps there seems to be an RDP client in there. He was connected to a bunch of Windows systems (one of which is actually a VMware host I think, with the surveillance app to the server room), not just the guy with the funny wallpaper. As for the actual connection with the guy with the funny wallpaper, well there are a bunch of IT-targeted applications before RDP's time to do remote sharing. If this is not fake, then that did not look like VNC since it would be too fast.

A clip from the 1966 movie Grand Prix. While it was a movie this clip, like all of the racing scenes from the movie, was filmed in real time in real F2 races (in 1966 F2 was a support series to F1). Best of all, this was filmed in one of the last years that the race at Spa ran the full original track, including the Masta Kink (where the cars bend between 2 farmhouses at 190MPH). This clip is what, to me, F1 racing should be rather than the dull parade it is today.

A movie spoofing Michael Moore while wrapping it into the Dickensian Christmas Carol concept. From this trailer alone, I have high hopes. Produced by the guys who brought us Airplane!, so there's a good chance it won't suck.

In the end, everything is Pachelbel's Canon in D. That's mighty damn depressing, though hilarious.

David Gilmour performs "Remember A Day" in memory of Richard Wright (it was a song composed by Richard). He sounds quite sad (obviously) singing this song. But it was still a great way of remembering his old bandmate.

I agree with the post above mine. That was just awesome. Wish I could have thought of that. Although, I did something very similar in a music video that I made, but it wasn't anywhere near that good.
