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.

Excellent point, very thoughtful.

You think so, too? Excellent. Have you anything else to say besides "making everything open source will stop the wars and make the world a better place"? I doubt it. You're a pitiful fundamentalist without a real opinion.

Would have been nice to find a more positive note before calling it a day here ;o) My first thought was to criticize you for substituting venom in place of rational argument. But maybe you're just having a really bad day and need to vent. Hope that after a good night sleep you can see that not everyone who supports and appreciates open source is a fundamentalist. Cheers.

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.
