Linux Ahem. I just had to write that all-caps headline. Broadcom's wireless chips - used by just about everybody in this industry - have been a major pain in the bum for Linux users, because the company did not release open source drivers. Workarounds had to be created, lots of pain was had in the process, but now, Broadcom has finally seen the light: they have open sourced their wireless Linux drivers.

It even appears to be a MIT/BSD license ;)


Could someone from the Haiku project comment on the usefulness of this release towards getting WiFi working well on Haiku?
