Airline seat-back entertainment system is a tux?

it was freaky to see the tux in front of me on a recent Delta flight from AZ. I was taken aback not just because it was Tux, but because I could see him. I shouldn't know anything about what systems are running on the plane, entertainment systems or any other types for that matter. Even though it was jus t the boot screen. Had I been less engaged in my book, i would have used my camera phone to record the boot messages to take a peek at later. I hope that the developers will consider moving the display to another device or at least employ a timer o something to keep the messages off the screen. Asisde from that, i enjoyed poking around the menu to see the options available.
