Red Hat Red Hat has an NDA cooperation with Marvell for the wireless chips that they want to use for the One Laptop per Child-project. The idea of this is that both parties think Marvell will be more open in the future, but this is absolutely not the path they should walk, according to OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt. "I am getting really tired of 'open source' people who work against the open source community. Our little group can probably take credit for having 'opened up' more wireless devices than the rest of the community, and therefore we feel we have a better grasp of the damage OLPC has done here."

Weren't you talking about the goodness of Open Source drivers some topics ago?

And look, now that they have it they are not happy with them, and if they gets the spect was next? will they want a stock options to the manufaturers too? see how complicated is now?

Nothing I've said is any indication that I'm not in favour of open source drivers. It isn't any more complicated than proprietary software, actually.
