Penguin Moves to Disney

The idea: develop technology using the Wine emulator to run Adobe Photoshop on Linux.

...The project has paid off tremendously for Disney this year alone. Development of the porting solution, including site licenses, cost Disney less than $15,000.

He estimates support would have been an additional $40,000 a year.
