+    <p>Director Robert Rodriguez's <em>Sin City</em> will be the first
+    film in theater's to be filmed in "a digital format supporting 
+    full-bandwidth RGB," according to
+    <a href="">this article</a>
+    from <a href="">LinuxDevices</a>.  And Samba was 
+    right in the middle of it all, as part of SpectSoft's Linux-powered DDR
+    (disk drive recorder)</p> 
+    <blockquote>According to SpectSoft, many high-end movie studios today 
+    use Linux for "everything," from rendering tools to proprietary 
+    compositing tools, because of its stability, customizability, and low 
+    system overhead. "Linux has won not only renderfarm servers, but the 
+    artist desktops of the top studios. It's hard to find a large studio 
+    that does not rely upon Linux as its primary animation and special 
+    effects OS," according to a SpectSoft brochure.</blockquote>
+    <p>Samba gets a mention in the article for its role in sharing the
+    file system on the DDR where shots were stored.  For more, see
