No, this is not. It is a difference if _they_ declare that Debian works
on a given machine or if _we_ do it.

Some informations about the management system as shipped with a H8QG8:
- Linux 2.6._24_
- Busybox 1.1.3
- Dropbear 0.50
- IPMI server as _kernel module_
- Standard X509 cert with support@ami.com as e-mail and expired _five_
  years ago

This system need some serious overhaul to even let it even near an open
network and a proper update mechanism.
