FreeBSD FreeBSD developer Scott Long said on Thursday that the next version of the open source BSD-based operating system, planned for release in September, includes support for "a lot more" wireless cards and for wireless security standards such as the Wi-Fi Protected Access.

Please... The troll is away, so do not call and feed him.

Regarding the article :

"the guy at FreeBSD who is adding wireless support is under contract from wireless companies to do the work"

Well, let us hope the drivers will be free (as in free speech). The OpenBSD developers already tried to deal with wireless device vendors and it was a real PITA for them to obtain anything (like documentation) without being bound to a NDA.
