Weta Digital is a great example as they are now an entirely Ubuntu shop, with Ubuntu used for *both* their workstations and their render farms. Films they have worked on include Avatar, District9, Day the Earth Stood Still, Jumper, King Kong, Lord of the Rings, Fantastic Four, Eragon, X-Men, i-Robot. (source: http://blog.dustinkirkland.com/2010/...r-renders.html).

        Ubuntu does own the cloud guest OS market with about 60% market share worldwide (see http://thecloudmarket.com/stats for up to date stats), I suppose some of the same benefits that made Ubuntu so dominant in the cloud also apply to render farms.
        They now use Linux BSD Solaris MS Apple (KDE Desktops) and many more also Ubuntu no longer Supports PowerPC as Canonical lost that battle And a lot of this Server Farms are PowerPC's also cloud is just a buzzword cloud is really just a bad joke and do to NSA a lot of cloud servers are getting dropped also the link thecloudmarket.com only shows open cloud servers "EC2 Statistics" Amazon servers..

        what you linked said but did not have any links to prove it
        "He notes that his farm (he calls it a "render wall") is in fact an Ubuntu Server farm, and not RHEL as he has seen reported in the media"

            I'm reading it, and it talks about client APIs. Do you happen to know what "client" means?

                "Mir is naturally still under heavy development, so don’t consider it finished quite yet. ;-)"
                what this really needs to say is
                "Xmir is naturally still under heavy development, so don’t consider it finished at all ;-) as we don't even know what we're doing thats why to coded Mir in C++ as that works well in low level systems?"
                even Jono Bacon wants to use Wayland as he pointed out in his Google+

                  Care to explain why c++ wouldn't be fit for purpose for a display server?
                  Do you think Canonical will target embedded platforms obscure enough so that a C++ compiler wouldn't be available (especially when choosing a C++ based toolkit for application development)?

                      Yes, C++ works well in low level systems.
