Default Die Hard: Nakatomi Corp. Runs BSD

Watching the greatest Christmas movie ever made (Die Hard) on Christmas eve, and noticed this fake 1988-era login screen. BSD!

UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.

You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump

Parts of this thread are opaque to me, but I can add that I did see Die Hard in Berkeley. Actually, it was probably in north Oakland, but close enough. I was just learning DOS then and didn't know about BSD yet.

My memory of the movie is also opaque . At first I recalled that I saw one of the DH sequels, but based on the Wikipedia info and the timing it had to have been the original movie. I also didn't remember that it took place on Xmas eve, or in a skyscraper; somehow I recalled something more like a space ship, but maybe that was a different Bruce Willis movie? Ahh well, it was more than 30 years ago!
