| I recently consulted with a company regarding various matters, one of which
| was IT. I advised them that they could substantially cut their IT costs by
| using Linux. I expected the usual resistance, but instead was greeted with a

| * Hewlett-Packard - HP is very Linux friendly. I'm somewhat surprised
| they've not launched a Linux desktop for the consumer market yet.
| * Walt Disney - uses Linux to create magic!
