Gary writes "Almost all movie studios primarily use Linux for animation and visual effects, but with more than 1000 Linux desktops and 3000 Server CPU's Dreamworks Animation is the largest commercial Linux installation. At the desktop, Dreamworks uses HP xw9300 workstations running RHEL 4 and the renderfarm uses HP DL145 G2 servers, with 2GB per core the servers have 8GB of RAM as they have 4 cores. Solid support for threading, NFS and LAMP toolsets are a few of the advantages with Linux."
