I don't want to do that. There have been many requests and questions
about desktop-style mainbaords which are supported in LinuxBIOS, thus
it's a good thing to have a "Desktop" section (even if it's a bit fuzzy).

Yep, but they aren't. Those are the boards which are marked as
"workstation solution" on tyan.com.

I don't know the extact status of these two. Who has more information?

This is yellow with a footnote eplaining the known issues/problems of
the board. Maybe we should change "OK" to "Mostly OK" or something
similar (but shorter)?
That's the intention of the yellow color -- it works mostly, but some
smaller issues remain.
