Yes, it's usable on desktops too. I think the main focus

The 440BX code is not yet fully working AFAIK, but work
is being done to improve things. I have a similar board
and will probably help testing, maybe coding...

I'll take care of that, there's a datasheet. I don't have the
hardware, though, so I won't be able to test.
