Shake it Up, a Disney sitcom that screens on The Disney Channel around the world, has slipped in an insult to open source software.
The show, which tracks the activities of a group of aspiring dancers on a TV show called "Shake it Up, Chicago", appears to be aimed at tweens. We make that assertion based on the age of comments on its web site, the brightly-coloured costumes and
crudely-stereotyped big-brush-strokes characters.
In the offending episode one such character, a squeaky-voiced, glasses-and-argyle-jumper-wearing kid who is clearly meant to be a nerd, is asked to fix another character's stricken computer.
