Which wireless cards are Windows-only? In open source, there is support
for Prism, Atmel, ADMtek, and Atheros. ACX-100 support for Linux is
well underway. I asked, and Realtek sent me some remarkably complete
documentation the other day, so that .11b chip is covered.
I think that there is still a major barrier to open source drivers
for Broadcom's wireless chips. I cannot think of any other maker.
What have I missed?
