    That's good news, but the real kicker is will they be GPL-compatible? If not, they can't be merged into the mainstream kernel, so people will still have no wireless until they download the drivers from Linksys (much like Nvidia and ATI's drivers).
    Stand up and be counted as a Linux user!

    Another binary blob, now from Linksys, at least it's better than nothing or ndiswrapper

    I hope someone downloads all of them incase Linksys decides to take them off.

    p.s.

    Is there any proof or press statement as to the factuality of the original poster's statement?
