No, this is not. It is a difference if _they_ declare that Debian works

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 firstname.lastname@example.org as e-mail and expired _five_
This system need some serious overhaul to even let it even near an open
network and a proper update mechanism.
