I brought this switch up at work yesterday. My customer (the head of
the department using Linux) said, "No big deal, we're really saving
our money on the hardware, paying for the OS is a drop in the
bucket. Besides the users love Linux on xw4100's compared to HP/UX on
C3700's".

I was surprised, especially considering how tight money has been at
work lately...

Of course, now I have to develop an image based on RHEL 3 when it
comes out...
