my view: whatever gets us closer to a feasible live-Linux-CDROM that is 
bootable on GA M57-SLI as well as ASUS A8N-E (the desktop flagships 30 - 
80€ in cost) and has binaries to flash on those targets is well 
supportable. we need binaries for early adopters to download and flash 
into their mobos and save that in wiki. --Q
