Linux and OSS have become de facto standards across a wide number of industries, and we are realizing the distinct benefits for pre- and post-production as Hollywood and Silicon Valley continue to explore best practices for technology transfer.

I experienced recently that adding emoticons to a reply makes some people click. Before, they would behave like idiots out of dark basements, and then, adding emoticons tamed them.

It is wonderful to be able to communicate using graphics. What a wonderful world.

You can insert graphics with Linux? ;-)

I'm not a fanboy of the companies!
Not even from Steinberg.

Nevertheless, I find it an interesting development.

    First they ignores you.
    Then they'll ridicule you in public.
    Then they fights you.
    And then they use/support it yourself.

      First they ignore you,
      then they laugh at you,
      then they fight you
      and then you win.

Anyway, I thought the rendering of animated movies and cgi stuff was all done on Linux already?

You know what. I might need to read that article first.

There were some comments about whether the doctor/patient image above was racist. This was off-topic for this thread, so I split the topic and moved them to viewtopic.php?f=11&t=18880
