Leo for Planetary Idiot

Any large software house will sell some hardware and third party software licenses when necessary to close a deal. There are parallels with other businesses were a company will sell additional stuff to sweeten the deal for the customer. The customer gets one-stop-shopping with one vendor to yell at if something does not work and the vendor gets a large contract with more control over the subsystems. Do right this is a win-win for both. So it does not surprise me that Autonomy was selling hardware and third party licenses and I also would not surprise if HP would do the same including third party hardware. So Leo is not the village idiot or national idiot but the planetary idiot for not having a clue or being willfully arrogant believing he next in line to God.
