Why don't movie developers use normal operating systems in movies? Like windows or mac?

Whenever I watch a movie and a computer screen comes up, I see that there are different types of operating systems that i have never seen before, only rarely have i seen them use windows, linux, or mac osx. Why do they do this? Is it some copyright situation? Thanks.

    Unix / Linux implies super user, smart person... Windows is too common to be used as a super deluxe OS. Mac is perceived as a novelty.
