I know we just bought a new HP blade solution and got VMWare ESX for the 8 blades. Hmm... Linux (for all intensive purposes) x8.

I can't help but think they're missing a large chunk of the market by not taking into account the systems shipping without an OS at all. Most large organizations buy their Windows licenses and/or install their own OS separate from the buying the physical machines. This is especially true with virtualization being used more and more.
