Have a look at the following find:


        "A sophisticated color-grading process running on Dell PowerEdge servers was
a triumph for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King filmmakers. The
challenge: to develop and run state-of-the-art color-grading software
capable of producing sophisticated color and lighting effects for post
production work on feature-length films; devise a process that enables
multiple workers to color-grade film simultaneously to accommodate projects
of enormous scope. The solution: custom-develop software-based digital
grading and finishing software; run a render program for the digital color
grading software on _Dell PowerEdge 2650 servers running the Red Hat Linux
operating system_. As a result, there was significantly improved speed and
productivity by enabling multiple color graders to quickly process film
footage on powerful Dell servers; a reliable platform that enables film
scenes to be moved from physical film to digital-only format without risk of
data loss."

So Dell spread the good word, too.
