We all recall with great pride how a Sony MSX2 HB900 was on the MIR spacecraft, I guess these early space craft all used propriety (self written) operating systems, I wonder which operating systems are used on spacecraft today? Not MSX I am sure of that! Maybe still propriety? OS X? Windows X? UniX? LinuX? OS/2 Warp? or even Space X?

The falcon touchscreens gave nothing away!

I guess they will keep that secret! The Laptop's are probably running Windows X? I guess that whichever operating system is used, if it is ever known, will have a brilliant advert.

I think I saw an Apple iPad Smile.

I would expect Linux as the commonly used OS... but the ISS was built in a different era, so maybe something else.

Tomas Lloret, one of the flight software engineers working at Space X, had a MSX (^_^)

Not really. He ported Blastar to HTML5 and I wanted to port it to MSX. So we were in contact.
