Interactive game based on the activities of M15 agents:

Check out the desktop on the computer!

Seems James Bond is running Ubuntu.

Meanwhile the BBC is claiming they only have 600 Ubuntu users:

Too bad! the game looks cool. But I guess they only want UK residents who have financed this site by means of an exorbitant licence fee to be able to see it.  ::)

EDIT: Added a screenshot.
