 "Star Wars" Effects Studio Shifts to Intel

CNet talks about Linux use at Industrial Light and Magic.

"The technical effects studio has switched from using RISC-Unix workstations from SGI to using Intel-based Dell systems running Linux for the bulk of its animation and special effects work, said Cliff Plumer, ILM's chief technology officer. As part of the conversion, ILM recently deployed 600 Pentium 4 workstations. "
