According to Doug Small, HP's worldwide director of open source and Linux marketing, HP is "in a massive [custom] deal right now for ... multi-thousands of units of a desktop opportunity for Linux." Although he declined to give CRN details about the Linux deals, Small said those deals are indicators of critical mass, and that HP is "really looking at it very hard."
HP has tried to sell Linux PCs in the past, but according to Small, the company "didn't see the results for it."
