hi guys!

i'm sure you all have seen your share of professional audio, video, and
lighting gear that apparently runs embedded linux but never mentions it
much (unless you happen upon the briefly flashing penguins immediately
after booting)...

i just came across the midas pro2 (which i have to learn for an upcoming
job), and lo and behold, in the manual, midas saith:
"The PRO2 uses the reliable Linux operating system."

not exactly in the brochure afaict, but in the very prominent first
section of the manual. :)

other expensive boxes i've seen and used which appear to be running linux:

* Allen & Heath iLive and GLD series audio mixers
* LAWO mc² series of audio mixers
* grandMA2 series of lighting controllers
* the DirectOut M.1k2 16x16 MADI router

none of these make a secret out of their OS, but it doesn't seem to be
an advertising item, either. is it because people are generally
disinterested in and/or frightened by the fact that their gear has to
have some sort of operating system inside? i wonder if we'll live to see
the day where "linux inside" is a hot marketing punchline.

i wonder if you guys have seen other pro gear whose data gets shuffled
around by industrious yet unseen penguins under the hood?
