As for your comment "There is a good reason why Linux has become so popular with the big movie studios -- its technical superiority over most proprietary operating systems allows for faster, more reliable data processing."
After doing some research, I have found that the studios had a major investment in UNIX based tools and footage. The adoption of studio grade Linux tools was made mostly for financial reasons, as is most always the case.
