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.

Phoronix is basically one person. He can and does make mistakes. Here you have a confirmation of what I said, straight from a Nvidia employee: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?p=1946515#post194651...
And there's other such posts from Nvidia employees at nvnews.net too, this was just the first one I found after a very quick search.
