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.

This means the end is coming right? Wow... I would have thought Broadcom would have gone out of business before getting a clue, but here we are! What changed? Did the CEO who was recto-cranially inverted retire or something?

For years people have been saying that Broadcom will open source its drivers when Duke Nukem Forever is released... ;-D
