When I was at Stonar, I had an A-level ICT student whose father was (and still is) the European Sales Director of Intel. I developed a good relationship with him, and once, when showing him round the Strongarm-based network he remarked that many companies would give anything for a network of such integrity. He offered me a set of 'Intel inside' stickers, and was not the least offended when I said, on balance, perhaps not. He also gave me a 10k gift of ethernet switchgear. On learning of school's proposed change to Windows, his views were that it would be a wrong move of the first order, putting it politely.
