DebianOn is an effort to document how to install, configure and use Debian on some specific hardware. Therefore potential buyers would know if that hardware is supported and owners would know how get the best out of that hardware.
The purpose is not to duplicate the Debian Official Documentation, but to document how to install Debian on some specific hardware.
If you need help to get Debian running on your hardware, please have a look at our user support channels where you may find specific channels (mailing list, IRC channel) dedicated to certain types of hardware.
If you want to contribute, you should read HowTo Contribute and see also Rating
When adding new devices, please also:
submit an installation report for the Debian installer team to process.
consider sending a hardware report to the Linux hardware database
