Announced today on Slashdot.com:
"Broadcom, the world's largest manufacturer of Wi-Fi transceivers, open sources its Linux device drivers. This is a big win for Linux users, as there are a lot of users that face Wi-Fi problems when they use Linux on their laptops. With these device drivers now open source, distributions can ship them out-of-the-box, and that means no Linux Wi-Fi problems for new devices and upcoming distributions at all."
This is an amazing one-up for the linux community, since we can now begin to support these devices with better than junk proprietary drivers or sometimes-working linux spinoffs (not to mention ndiswrapper).
