That's an interesting perspective. It didn't initially occur to me that Dreamworks' server farms of thousands of computers would pose an enormous expense just for the operating system licensing alone, had they decided to use a proprietary OS. Not to mention that certain OSes charge license fees based on the number of physical CPUs per server, or by the number of incoming connections (I won't mention any names).
