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.

Hope that after a good night sleep you can see that not everyone who supports and appreciates open source is a fundamentalist.

I can see that already. But people like you, whose criterion for quality, above all else, is whether software is Open Source or not, qualify as fundamentalists in my book. So sorry, Hans.
