I would thoroughly enjoy watching that check clear. I wonder if they got it in giant cardboard check size?

This. The DOD, USDA, and allot of universities all had contracts with Gateway when I worked for them. OEMs get contracts like this all the time.

I always liked HP. It's too bad that Carly Fiorina had to completely ruin their corporate culture and take one of the few 'good' companies left and turn it into the soulless, outsourcing, shareholder appeasing machine it is now. I really wish Hewitt would have won that proxy battle with her. That proxy was a call to all of corporate America that shareholders are as soulless and as purely greed driven as the companies are these days.

Well as long as they don't run XP they'll be fine. HP drivers/support for XP is terrible(I work at a large IT firm that hasn't made the switch to 7 quite yet).

HP hardware is pretty darn good though, the punishment some of the laptops we provide go through is amazing. 10x more durable and reliable than the mac hardware we deploy.

Also, it is not one check.

Also, HP provides hardware, not software (in the largest of majorities...)
They may or may not run fedora, I have no idea.
