Submission + - Hardware in large corp./govt. desktop Linux with full A/V etc.?

spamhog writes: Showing a degree of pervicacity, some corporates and governments are still today slowly deploying Linux on the desktop http://www.zdnet.com/the-truth-about-goobuntu-googles-in-house-desktop-ubuntu-linux-7000003462/, despite clearly worsening hardware support, with video acceleration flaky, Ethernet cards jumpy, WiFi a chore — and audio so messy even Miguel de Icaza gave up on it. http://tirania.org/blog/archive/2012/Aug-29.html
It seems part of the trick is providing the right support + discipline + hardware environment, something at which large entities above a certain critical mass are much better at that than SMEs or the lone system builder / luser.
I am contacting some organizations asking for information on actually deployed desktop hardware, down to the chipset level, with a focus on deployments with full A/V aspirations as opposed to sweat-stations for sad, silent, transaction-only work.
The government of Malaysia seems to be one. http://mygosscon.oscc.org.my/2012/
Other suggestions?

grew up on Copernicus Street in Lvov,

We have a 6-m wide paraboloid for space comms right atop the condo here.

Time to plan a street party.

Who do I write to if I want to borrow a relic for the occasion?

A phalanx or a pair of teeth would do fine.
