Don't know of any... but ask to talk to an SE (sales engineer), rather
than just sales. I'd assume they know *nothing* of distros.

<shakes head> I once started a support call with Sun/Oracle *shudder*, and
the engineer got all huffy, they didn't support CentOS (it was a hardware
problem), and he obviously didn't know anything about it. I escalated, and
got another engineer (and the story goes downhill from there).
