yes, hurd seems less relevant right now and would confuse

enterprises are a tad bigger then companies. Nokia and HP are
enterprises, Movia is a company, only.

i think that represntation is good. i would perhaps stress that
we are short of money and could not really afford to pay for
those rooms. a phrase i use in my mails to companies is:

Because the Debian Project doesn't engage in commercial
activities, it depends on donations from well-wishers.  A modest
amount of sponsorship by NetApp would not only help Debian
immensely but would reap huge dividends in terms of goodwill in
the Linux community at large. 

feel free to cherry-pick!

well, we would need more then a "modest amount" from HUT for the
rooms. but then it does not really hurt them that badly since
they can hide it in their running costs.
