    Pixar is now Disney.

    The deal is done... Pixar is now Disney... The papers have been filed with the SEC, and the stock has been sold/purchased...

    Jobs is now on the board, and is the single largest investor in Disney...

    Well, untill Apple start making decent POS solutions, all the Registers will be IBM for a long time, and until Apple supports Active Directory, everything else with be a HP/Dell mix for ages.

    Re: Pixar is now Disney.

    Hp is still a sponsor and has a long term deal going. so when it expires maybe apple will be brought in. but everything is windows based isn't it? the cost of upgrading must be astronomical

    Don't they need to fix more driver issues with that first, and it only works with xp I thought...

    But imagine mission space, running on 4 mini macs, one for each centrifuge...

    Spaceship earth running on one..

    Space mountain running on 2, one for ride operations, one for the modes...

    Kiosks.

    Brilliant... Its brilliant

    Thats just a PITA, it'll turn out to be twice as expensive as buying 100 HP's in bulk and loading a Ghosted Image.

    As for Ride operations, you need a flexible hardware and software base to run the heavy duty mission-critical ride operations on, i.e. Disney Builds the PC's themselves and the software usually runs on a custom OS base, or Windows/Linux for less Important stuff.

    In the Office/Theme Park industry, Mac's still (and won't) have a place. They should stick to the Home and the Digital Arts industries.

    George Lucas also owned Pixar in the early beginnings of the company.

    And offered it to Disney. Funny how things turn out. Like four of the seven baby bells soon to all be operating under the AT&T name again.
