Linux stars in Microsoft movie

`In a stroke of irony, Microsoft’s Halo movie will be produced in Wellington by servers running the open-source Linux operating system. [..]

Bungie, the Microsoft-owned development firm which created the game, confirmed that Peter Jackson’s post-production firm Weta Digital would be involved in the movie.

Weta Digital uses more than 1000 dual-processor IBM blade servers running the Fedora version of the Red Hat distribution of the Linux to produce special effects for movies that have so far included Lord of the Rings and King Kong.’
