[vox] More on direction of Holywood to adopt Linux



Wow, Linux is getting even more mainstream! Even the general media is
covering it i from Iwon's general news passed by REUTERS:

Mentions Shrek, and Titanic as well as the fake-user-commands
sort-of-kinda Linux screen captures in AntiTrust as well as IBM's plans to
provide new film software. ( Linux Digital Studio from IBM ) Ho0wever, I
would expect it will not be OpenSource - just a guess.

Big ticket uses of Linux in high-profile locations are good to point to
and say, "See?! Linux is used here, and here and there." when less
informed , less technical people ask, "so what good is it? How does it
help me?"

Just an Informational post

Enjoy,
