Why are computers not displayed accurately in movies. In most movies I have seen, computers are not displayed accurately. In almost every one, the computers use a totally unrealistic operating system. Why the extra trouble. The studios must spend much extra money creating these faux operating systems. Another thing is the sounds that a computer makes. Even in movies today, each keystroke corresponds with a beep or blip sound made by the computer. Sometimes it almost sounds like a teletype machine.
