Where my hardware money goes

Mostly IBM, not because I buy Red Hat pre-installed, but because I *can* and therefore I have reasonable assurance that it will be possible to do it myself. Sun also gets some of my business for this reason. When a Lenovo executive made that spiteful remark about Linux support a few months back, I sent a memo to my boss saying we need to start looking for a new laptop and desktop vendor, perhap HP, since they have models that run Linux. Luckily, that Linux distancing was at most a trial balloon at Lenovo. If Dell gets serious about Linux certification, I'll give them a new look.
