** In the ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'' games, the targeting computer has the same color scheme as the films but puts a [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience color overlay]] on top of the game's own graphics instead of using grids and dots.

* A lot of serious Linux users favor minimalistic window managers and the command line over fancy graphical interfaces.

* Ansem's Computer in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' is supposed to be highly advanced and storing all of his and his students research data. Yet, it uses 8-bit graphics and a user-interface which looks like the most primitive form of Windows the world has ever seen. Not even a mouse is used. It's somehow justified by the fact that this computer is the gate to "Space Paranoids", a world based on the '80s movie ''Film/{{Tron}}'', and the fact that it ''is'' at least twenty years old already by the time ''[=KH2=]'' takes place, and there hasn't exactly been anyone around to upgrade the software.

* Aboard the starship Entreprise-2061 of ''ComicBook/{{Pouvoirpoint}}'', all screens display geometric or wireframe graphics, and crappy screensavers.

Added DiffLines:

* In an obvious stylistic choice, ''Anime/KillLaKill'' is set at most TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture or possibly in a higher-tech alternate present, yet all the screens shown are low-res, grayscale LCD displays, even when they're attached to supercomputers or smartphones.

Added DiffLines:

* Generally any "gaming" tool not part of the game package or intended for public use (like server or mod tools) use the default Windows interface because they're designed for utilitarian purposes and people who know what they're doing prefer to not have the GUI eating up computing resources.

* In ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles'' we learn that at least part of [=SkyNet=] is written in Visual Basic and that Terminator [=CPUs=] plug into small subsection of PCI bus. No wonder they want to kill humanity.

** Could be justified with the limited amounts of power the onboard computers of mass-produced (for the Empire's bloated war machine) ships could afford.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Superhot}}'', the OS for the player's computer and most of the apps on it are made of ASCII art, but there are hints of CyberPunk levels of technology available to [[spoiler:the System]], most prominently [[spoiler:their BrainUploading]].

** Oddly enough, the [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 re-imagined series]] [[InvokedTrope made a point of this]] with the computers on Galactica, which [[WordOfGod have been described as]] being far below the specs of today's systems. The reason is that during the initial Cylon uprising, the robots were extremely good at hacking, so the Battlestars used no wireless communications and only standalone computers (no networking). Since the Cylons vanished, all the Battlestars have been upgraded; Galactica is the only old-style Battlestar left, as its commander stubbornly insists that the Cylons aren't gone forever. (Spoiler alert: [[spoiler:he's right]].
