Wi-Fi driver status confirmed

February 4, 2009

Kernel developer Notaz has confirmed that the driver for the Wi-Fi chip will be open, with code taken from the Android project. It seems that there will still be a proprietary firmware blob, but it will be internal to the chip itself, not part of the kernel.
