Ubuntu in the wild: BBC program Operation Iceberg's scientists use Ubuntu

With every new Ubuntu release, it seems that Ubuntu is getting used more and more. Previously, I have covered a few Ubuntu in the wild cases, and I hoped you all enjoyed those. Today, I'm sharing a new one.

Operation Iceberg is a BBC program, essentially, presenting a team of scientists and explorers traveling to the Arctic, bearing a main purpose of revealing, exploring, discovering a fascinating full-of-mystery world of icebergs.
In addition to their adventures, it appears that they are also equipping themselves with Ubuntu as well. The scientists enjoy the Unity desktop, particularly the launcher because of its accordion effect. What the effect does is collapse icons when there is so many icons on the launcher to fit your screen's height.
