It does seem overkill to have product categories listed for each supplier, since most of the categories have only one product or there is only one category of products.
This makes the suppliers.html page look too verbose and long, so people lose interest in reading the whole page, thus they never scroll to the suppliers at the bottom ;-)
I suggest a rollback of the commit that has introduced categories.
P.S. The only supplier that is treated differently is the one before Minifree. Libiquity products are listed in a compact, not categorized way.
For reasons of thoroughness, to help people tell between products, the categorization was necessary. It is to make it obvious to people who want a laptop, for instance, which products on the page are laptops. Same for desktops and servers.
Since they are similar in form factor, perhaps the desktop/server entries could be compacted into a single category? So Minifree's D16 server version and desktop version would be under a "Desktops and servers" header. Same for Vikings; combine D16 1U server and D16 workstation into a single "Desktops and servers header".
I squashed the Libiquity entry since they only sell 1 actual computer product. It made more sense. And they're right at the top of the page (since the list is in alphabetical order) - you're right, though. Perhaps that section could be categorized too?
As for people's tendency to not want to scroll... I hadn't thought of that possibility but you're right, it could be an issue. I don't currently see a way that we could mitigate this tendency in people, however.
Personally, I don't think the page as-is should be changed, unless maybe another supplier comes along and then we will add them aswell. But let's wait to see what Paulk, Alyssa, Swift etc say.
A top menu with the anchor links could be a solution. Like:
Libiquity Minifree Technoethical Vikings Other
I don't believe this is an issue in practice. If you disagree, please send a pull request with the desired changes. Closing.
