It means that in the distant past (read: 7.x and earlier days) Red Hat
certification was not important to them. We stopped testing individual
parts around RHL 8, so it really doesn't reflect poorly on Biostar now.

The Hardware Certification List in it's present form is primarily for
system integrators (Dell, HP/Compaq, IBM, and some others). Biostar
*could* submit machines for testing, but that is up to them. Better yet
would be for system integrators using Biostar motherboards to test their
systems (using the scripts found on the hardware website) and submit the
passing results (and a standard fee for posting) to Red Hat.
