Ubuntu Spotted on Dara O'Brien's Science Club

Bang Goes The Theory (Series 6 Episode 3)

Spotted a Linux desktop on some security expert's Samsung Netbook, on this fear-mongering and patronizing episode of Bang Goes The Theory. Geek points if you can identify the desktop.

Update: It seems to be Backtrack, a well known penetration testing distro with KDE.
