Penguin in Toy Story 2...

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
I just watched toy story 2 and I was wondering if the squeaking penguin in there is a reference to linux?

Didn't pixar use linux rendering farms at one point?

I do believe around Toy Story 2 they had not yet moved into their new facility, so I've no idea what their render farm was. I dobut it was SGI based, but who knows. The workstations are SGI based.

Pixar's farm is now full of Pentiums.

I know. I am just making the point that their farms are now Pentiums.

If you look back, the identity for Quicktime 3.0 was a penguin. There are penguins everywhere.

There was a vampire bunny with sunglasses. That one was top-secret though.

Moof is the sound that a dog cow makes. (read mac addict way back issues.) I still have a moof t-shirt (and wear it!).
