Error! OEM exists with OpenSource Linux distributions _too_.
Fancy all the big enterprises would have the time and money to run their
own computer department to get a Linux in ? no they don't all have their 
own administrators. Instead of that they buy services and OEM means a 
specific type of contract which is not related to what OS or what 
distribution.

Define:OEM
