All of the computer graphics effects houses are using Linux. Pixar, Lucasfilm/ILM, Dreamworks, etc. They live in fear that nVidia will walk away from the market, leaving them with nothing to run but that new Intel chipset. They have people as smart as the ones at nVidia, and ones who know how to code for that sort of hardware.
I wrote microcode for the Pixar image computer. Mostly 2D point processes, not 3D rendering. But I'm hardly the only one who has worked in this.
