Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

Okay since you don't want to bother scrolling up (or down, I'm replying from email so I don't know where in the comment stream this is): RaLink RT2870. For the fourth fucking time.

Funny how you complain that people don't read, but you don't take the time to do a little research? I just did a quick search in Google: RaLink RT2870 debian.

The first result links to a page with the explanation. The firmware was removed from kernel version 2.6.30, not because of a mysterious, weird reason, but because (according to Debian's standards) it contains non-free code. You may or may not agree with their politics, but there IS a reason, and that reason is what other people have been telling you since the beginning. It took me about less than 30 seconds to find it.

So, who's the "lazy" one?
