htop in popular culture :-D
To my complete amazement, htop has been featured in a few pieces of media over the years. It always makes my day when someone emails me telling they've spotted htop in a film or TV show. I find it extremely flattering, because I think it's a sign that I nailed the particular kind of aesthetic I was going for when I designed its UI. At Hugo Gualandi's suggestion, here's a page with some of these sightings. Please email me if you find more! :)
Tatort (2017), according to Wikipedia is "a German language police procedural television series that has been running continuously since 1970 with some 30 feature-length episodes per year, which makes it the longest-running German TV-drama." Thanks to Jan-Erik for the link!
"Watch Dogs 2" (2016), video game. htop appears in the character's phone. Thanks to @digital_night_owl for the link!
Video for Jean-Michel Jarre's "Oxygene 17" (2016). Thanks to Chris Clemson for the screenshot!
"Mr. Robot" (2015), TV series. It's clearly a Hollywood mockup and not the actual software, but it's pretty evident they were going for the htop look. :) Thanks to Hugo Gualandi for the screenshot!
"The Fifth Estate" (2013), movie. Another Hollywood mockup, but the trademark look of the meters is there. :) Thanks to Pierre Chapuis for the link!
