This is great. Organizing the boards like that is very helpful I think,
particularly for new users.

Yeah - I guess that distinction is debatable for some of these boards. But as
a criterion that's a pretty good choice.

I have a more general question about the status field. When do we consider a
board 'OK' (motherboard is fully supported)? For instance; the Tyan S2881 and
S2882 are listed as 'OK' even though there is no ACPI support, which means
that fan control doesn't work (at least last time I checked).
