Huh, if you blacklist Realtek (Realtek chips are found almost
everywhere...), Intel and Ati, given that Ati belongs to AMD, it's
likely you won't spend much money on computers in the future :-)

No. 8.10 stands for 2008, October, whereas Lenny was released in
February, 2009. That being said, Lenny is the most vintage of these
distros (shipping with 2.6.26, whereas 8.10 is shipping 2.6.27).
