I think it's the same with 'appliances'. HP should have known that an appliance is a hardware and software bundle, and looked at the numbers for both. Same with reselling 3rd party software as part of any solution sale, ie OS licences, databases, utilities etc that aren't Autonomy's own IP. Again all entirely normal.
