Typically on TV shows the fake OS's look like some weird OSX + Windows XP hybrid. Its hideous.

Why don't they just use an actual OS? Is it like a legal issue with showing an OS on T.V./Movie?

Probably, just like how they always position bottles, etc so that the logo is turned away from the camera unless its a case of blatant paid product placement.

It's too bad none of these operating systems will ever come to be. They don't have a start menu, so they're all broken. ;)

They are actually.  There is an episode of firefly where you can see the windows desktop for a moment before the screen pans to a different person.  When the screen pans back to the computer screen it is the firefly interface.  It looked like it was windows 95/2000.
