    1. The movie Conceiving Ada…
    2. Microsoft Windows XP? too easy so that is probably not the answer.
    3. Jean Ichbiah…

    Therefore idea behind the question is the Ada programming language. Ichbiah was the chief designer. And the movie is about Lady Ada Lovelace after whom it was named.
    Where does MS Widows XP CD come in? No idea. :-( Are there some Ada related images on the CD label?

    the connect is ada lovelace.

    the first poster is the movie based on a computer genius getting in touch with ada lovelace’s spirit

    windows xp professional was codenamed ada?

    the third visual is the creator of the ada programming language..


  6. 1. Conceiving Ada
    2. Ada Lovelace’s image can be seen on Microsoft’s hologram stickers.
    3. Jean Ichbiah, who headed the team that made up the computer language Ada.

    Hence, hte connect would be Ada Lovelace.

    Whew, all that from just IDing Tilda Swinton. :)
