HP says yes to Mr. Shuttleworth....

HP Announced that they have certified the 12.04 release of Ubuntu for use with their hardware.  While there was never a time when it wouldn't have run this means that support calls will get answered.  This certification shows both HP commitment to Linux and the Ubuntu specificly.  We love seeing HP support linux and really starting to focus on it.
