My November 2005 copy of the Linux Journal arrived Monday with the
Reader’s Choice Awards resultsHP ProLiant wins Favorite Server category!

Favorite Server

  1. HP ProLiant
  2. Monarch Empro Custom Rack Server
  3. Unisys ES7000 Family

A note to HP: please take this first-place win here, where second-place votes were less than half of what you received, as proof that we like
your boxes, so you can cut out the pointless marketing poo-flinging at
Sun, already.

Editor’s Choice Award for Server Hardware. Now the readers are singing
the ProLiant’s praises.”

Yay team!
