their special effects and animation needs, technology giants are
taking notice. On Wednesday, International Business Machines Corp.
is set to announce its Linux Digital Studio package, made up of
workstations, server computers and data storage machines.
Linux has already helped create special effects-laden
blockbusters like ``Titanic'' and the animated hit ``Shrek.'' It
even landed on-screen in the film ``AntiTrust,'' which featured
programmers battling against a software behemoth headquartered in
the Pacific Northwest."
