    goes to show--not even Disney can clear copyright/trademark rights for their movies.

    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.
