Actually I've got a fun fact.
When last year the Israeli parliament published the official requirements
for the new FOH system in the plenum, it stated that no Microsoft driven
console would be allowed:)
Now they are running the Lawo mc2 series...
I know this because I'm the sound engineer in the Israeli parliament:)

Best Regards,
Moshe

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 mu=
ch (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 jo=
b), 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 lin=
ux:

* Allen & Heath iLive and GLD series audio mixers
* LAWO mc=B2 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 disinterest=
ed in and/or frightened by the fact that their gear has to have some sort o=
f 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 arou=
nd by industrious yet unseen penguins under the hood?
