Austin Linux Group Meeting Minutes; Date: June 28, 2007

Austin Linux Group Meeting Minutes
Date: June 28, 2007
Location: Waller Creek

General discussion. Version 3 of GPL will be released tomorrow.

Linux and Wireless cards.

Recently I was looking for an inexpensive wireless card for a cheap computer
running Linux (PCMCIA). I found out that there are basicly 4 major companies
making wireless cards. All of these wireless cards either don't support Linux
or require a proprietary driver, or proprietary BLOB, to run under Linux!
I won't even talk about those cards that can be only used under ndisdriver
which means that basicly, you are using a WINBLOWS driver! Uck.
