Disney Shifting Film Animation to Linux
Martin O'Donnell pointed out that today's New York Times is reporting that Disney's film animation division is migrating its workstations to Linux. This is not a surprise because many film production businesses in Hollywood have made the switch to Linux in the last two years. What is interesting, however, is the fact that the Times chose to initially refer to the operating system as "GNU Linux". We wonder if the writers and editors fully appreciate the political connotations of doing that.
