Gunnar,

No, I'm absolutely with you on this one. LWN - This is, effectively, 
a sponsorship gesture from HP which means that they are getting advertising/
kudos/value from exposure of their name and an expense they can discount as a charitable
donation.

Jon and LWN also get the benefits of insightful contributions from Debian folk,
of course.
