Some developers may need to acquire new hardware in order to run
Haiku, and a list of hardware that works might make the difference
between developer and would-have-been developer.  Or at worst, a
list of hardware that doesn't work could save some would-have-been
developers some frustration.

My computer that has run BeOS for lo these many years wouldn't run
Haiku, and my new computer has needed to make some accommodations
(e.g., IDE disk instead of SATA.)
