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.

Surely Broadcom wouldn't make an announcement with a glaring punctuation error and refer to themselves in the third person.


You mean someone might be pulling a Phoronix-style announcement here? ;)
