In case you didn't know: in "Jurassic Park", when Lex says "It's a Unix system! I know this!", it's not a Hollywood mockup.

What she's looking at is fsn, the File System Navigator, running on an SGI IRIS Crimson computer running the IRIX filesystem. IRIX was a variant of Unix System V with BSD extensions.

The grand irony of that scene is that the "it's a Unix system!" sequence is MORE accurate than the depiction of the dinosaurs in "Jurassic Park".

@noelle yo, I am STILL mad that "Jurassic World" had non-feathery dinosaurs

@noelle the most believable thing about jurassic park is not the idea that zoos are impossible, but the idea that everyone is terrible at infosec and software will fuck you.
