HP making money with Debian


I guess this article [1] is at least worth a Debian times item: Supporting 
Debian brought $25 million in directly related sales in EMEA.

/title/Supporting Debian makes sense, commercially speaking./title/

<p>According to Jeffrey Wade, worldwide open source marketing manager at <a 
href="http://www.hp.com/";>HP</a>, supporting Debian for its Proliant and 
Blade Systems servers was a surprising commercial success: $25 million in 
hardware sales for 2006 in EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) were directly 
related to HP starting to offer official support for Debian sarge.</p>

<p>In the same <a 
on InternetNews, Wade also assured that official support for Debian etch 
will be forthcoming soon after the latters release.</p>

Probably needs some polishing, I'm away partying for the next week.
