    and this is the result....


    "The article from Gizmodo" posted:
    That's not an actual quote of course, but the scene here looks so contrived that it seems plausible. The scary thing is that the Cybersquad is protecting our data with old Dells, Windows XP and "intimidating" Matrix screensavers. Plus, that 37-inch Westinghouse sitting right on top of the keyboard is a good indicator that the Feds have extremely poor eyesight—so who knows what kind of mistakes are being made.

    Using a "Matrix" screen saver to make it seem like you're actually doing something important? Totally something our government and Fox News would do together...

    all government agencies should use the new year's model of alienware computers and should swap out video cards and processors whenever a faster one hits the market good god who fucking cares what kinds of computers they use

    that's like saying police departments should buy 2010 dodge chargers because they look unprofessional driving old crown vics

    Why would they spend millions of dollars to upgrade their computers, when an old Dell works perfectly fine?

    I have the same screensaver, ever since the Matrix movies came along (Wow, it's been 10 years!!)... it looks BEAUTIFUL on widescreen displays...

    You guys might want to try it out, you can get it from here.

    On the FBI's defense, most businesses, like somebody said before, still use Win XP, so it's not unusual. As a matter of fact, the HSBC bank has a Windows Vista -not even 7, fucking Vista- migration scheduled for May 2010!

    XP may not be the prettiest nor the simplest, but the FBI needs to learn to work with XP since it's basically the way to understand all other windows OSs. But they are too cool for macs, just like me :cool:
