Debian backed by HP



Yodel!

Should this (below) be paired by an announcement of Debian?  "Debian is 
proud to see a major vendor supporting Debian on its Server hardware" or 
the like?

I feel Debian is quite underrated as a commercially viable Linux 
distribution due to the non-existence of its marketing departement.  Also, 
I think with HP funding Debian in some not so small ways, it would be 
curtesy to show the Debian actually notices when HP makes a move like this.

(official HP press release is apparently not out yet; see 
<http://www.hp.com/hpinfo/newsroom/press/2006/index.html>.)
