Can HP redeem itself in my eyes?

Apparently HP has announced global support for Debian GNU/Linux. This is a good thing.

However, I am confused as to what attitude I should have towards HP. You see, I bought a HP 5550c scanner and I have been utterly disappointed by the performance of the ADF on the said scanner. In response to this, I have decided that I would not buy any other HP product. But now I learn that HP is sponsoring Debian… which is the distribution I use on my computers. HP’s sponsorship of Debian is a very good thing.

What am I to do? For sure, I won’t buy another scanner with ADF from HP. Perhaps, however, I should not ban other HP products out of hand?
