While going through the paperwork for our new television, I ran across an item I’d never seen before.

A statement of the GPL license for the open source software used in device.

In other words, something in the TV is running Linux.

If you find it strange that I would consider this discovery to be at all blog-worthy, you should know this screen replaces a 27″ CRT from 1988.

In some areas of technology, I don’t upgrade very often. :-)
