Linux is not only the ideal operating system for small screen devices like netbooks, but also a pretty good choice for the big screen. Several of the top blockbusters of all time were created with the help of Linux software or render farms running Linux.

The most recent example being the soon-to-be most successful movie Avatar. The New Zealand-based visual effects company Weta Digital sits behind the stunning visual effects of Avatar as well as some other movies you may have heard of, including the The Lord of the Rings, The Day The Earth Stood Still, X-Men, I, Robot, and the 2005 King Kong remake.

As pictures can say more than words, let's have a look at some of the blockbusters made with the help of Linux.
