LinuxWorld: Dreamworks fuels Open Source movement

Author: JT Smith

From InfoWorld, posted at CNN: "Dreamworks itself today is composed of more than 250 workstations and a
rendering farm comprising more than 1,000 servers, the bulk of which are
Linux-based. The systems are primarily based on dual processor Pentium 3
processors, with migration to Itanium/Pentuim 4 technology just around the
corner. Where workstations are concerned, Dreamworks runs the film industry's
most popular machines: Silicon Graphics 02 and Octane platforms.

Judging by audience enthusiasm here,
Dreamworks' public declaration of Linux
support was a welcome vote for open-source
true believers."
