Isn't Steve Jobs on the board for Disney?
I know apple and Disney are in bed together, interesting that Ubuntu was running there!
Maybe ILM were involved in the movie (they use all sorts of OS's ... and they love python!)
Or maybe a tech there liked it. Who knows. But it's all good news to my ears!

Oh come on even Steve Job back when Pixar was it's own thing had Linux doing their rendering and development machines. no big suprise that the animations industry likes Linux; mainly because it has some of the best tools for the job.

OK... don't frag me!;) Upon closer inspection, it's not Ubuntu, but some version of Windoze. Background and toolbar sure seem like it, tho. Guess I just get over enthusiastic sometimes.

Windows XP, possibly themed. note prominent product placement of HP and Windows Internet Explorer icons.

I always like that in the film The Matrix, Neo presses CTRL + C to try and get rid of the message on his screen, and all the Windows fan boys who are watching the film are saying, 'That's so lame, why would he press CTRL + C'.

har har, it'll be interesting in the comming years to see what is taken from the it world and gains a spot light. ubuntu won't be because it doesn't have enough money to bribe.
