colonel panic

Why is it that, in every movie, or, more importantly, in every episode of 24, whenever a computer is used, it's running some freak awesome operating system. You know, like when Jack Bauer has to h4ck the mainframe and swipe the terrorist filez, he's not using Windows. Instead, it's all "INVALID PASSWORD", "DOWNLOAD COMPLETE!", "POP TARTS DELICIOUS". Even when it's boring stuff like checking email, basically every onscreen pc is like "NO NEW EMAILS SUPER EXPLODE" with flashing lights and spinning clown corpses and stuff.
