We have just bought a new TV set. Happy that it has WLAN and Network so I connected it to our home-network. A quick "nmap" run on the IP address of the TV shows "x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu" as its OS (please see the log output below)
Great, our TV is running Linux. Smoooth ....
.... and since it has an IP address it is now already automatically documented by I-doit in my personal openQRM.
mhmmmm :) ... so, it is actually an open-source GPL firmware/operating system on this TV ... and were I can download it to enable the sshd daemon for login in ?
I could have also titled this blog entry as
"Why Linux on the Desktop will not happen".
The reason for why Linux on the Desktop will not happen is because it is already there. Linux has already arrived for the average Users on Smartphones, Tablets, DSL Routers, even TVs and many more other gadgets.
Here the nmap log output:
