Office Space

Factual error: All of the computers show a Mac OS when they're booted up. However, when Peter is shutting his computer down to try to escape his boss, the computer shuts down to a C: prompt. For those not technically minded, a C: prompt is only seen on IBM-compatible PCs, never on Macs. (00:19:20)

Factual error: Following on the previously submitted mistake about the MacOS and the C: prompt, when Michael is loading the penny-fraction program he is using a Mac but his hand is on a two-button mouse, which Macs don't have.

Suggested correction: You can hook up a two button mouse to a Mac computer.

Also, Mike Judge has said that he deliberately mixed features of computer software and hardware so that the characters aren't seen to be using a specific kind of computer system. So this is probably a deliberate mistake.

Factual error: When Peter is fishing, the fish being caught is a largemouth bass. When he holds the fish up in the office, it is a striped bass.
