    Linux in a Web Documentary

    I was watching the included web documentaries included in the Episode 3 DVD pack. At the end of one of the episodes, one of the digital artists was explaining her job of cleaning up C3PO's look and I noticed, to my happiness, that she was running KDE.

    Here is a link to a screenie i made: http://www.imagedump.com/index.cgi?pick=get&tp=343483

    I had to tell someone.

    Yeah, I know. But I figured they'd use a proprietary, in house WM.

    Sure looks that way to me too. Especially the wallpaper on the far side; it looks like Panther (yeah, I know it's used on Linux systems too). The whole thing, though, looks like OSX.

    The screen on the left id DEFINITELY Kde, the one on the right might be KDE with an OSX theme (I have it on my laptop...) I also have the ox set of Star Wars Episode 1 and ALL of the systems are using Linux (some KDE, some Gnome, some Enlightenment. They use AMD's (wooot!!) with giga's of RAM and a cluster of AMD's (woot) for the backend!

    Yeah, they may be OSX for I wouldn't know. But I seem to recall reading, somewhere, that ILM, disney, and pixel threw in some code to the wine project so they could run photoshop on their linux boxes since a majority of them weren't comfy with gimp's interface. And they didn't want to run M$ since the only reason for doing so was for photoshop. IT's an old story probably 4 years old by now.

    They actually use Cinelerra (film-gimp), with lots of in-house plug-ins written for different usage...

    That near screen is definately KDE. I'm guessing (from the layout of her physical desktop,) that she's running dual screens, w/ an OSX theme.

    And why would they need thier own WM? GNOME/KDE/Enlightenment would do it just fine. As long as you can find the progrrams you need.
