No, it's a particular sales rep who is saying (possibly with the full 
support of the company) that their products _don't_ work with Linux - 
because basically he doesn't want to go to the hassle of checking.  I say 
"possibly with ... support" because it actually makes some business sense 
for Logitech to explicitly deny support to avoid the hassle of supporting a 
small portion of the market.  And it will continue to make business sense to 
them until Linux users make it clear that the attitude costs them.
