As usual, roy.  You seem to get the facts totally wrong.

On airplanes:


"The Linux based flight entertainment system used by South African Airlines
was quite unstable and crashed more than once with a kernel panic during
the 11 hour flight from Cape Town back to Frankfurt. "


"The video screens didn't work on the airplane so the crew rebooted the
video server several times, letting us all see the Linux config and IP
addresses. Every seat contains a PC with Linux!"


"It was still booting up when I got on the plane."


"One side of the aircraft's touchscreens didnt work for the flight; the
other side was fine. They tried rebooting, but alas, no in flight trivia or
tv for me. Nice to see they were running a useful app on linux, though."


"On a recent flight the screen at my seat spontaneously rebooted, looks
like they are running Linux "


"The Delta Song flight from Los Angeles to Boston just landed, and I was
waiting to deplane, when the entertainment screens behind all the seat
backs simultaneously rebooted. I saw the familiar Linux penguin, and
watched the boot scroll by. Cool!"

And, of course, it's not an arcade.
