Re: which company is worse?
I still have a set of beautifully created cardboard folders complete with embossed logos and bright orange internal elastic bands to hold in place the single sheet of carbon copy line printer paper on which the DEC ULTRIX licence was printed (which I think we never had to use anyway).
We got one of these folders for each DECstation we bought. Although only cardboard they have lasted 25 years longer than the DECstations did and still in regular use by me.
But HP definitely biggest offender in the over-packaging stakes ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyNFNvFAlWs
