    Phoronix: Making Linux Drivers Free To Companies

    Remember Greg Kroah-Hartman's comments earlier this year about offering up free Linux driver development for all companies willing to provide hardware specifications to the developers? Novell has realized the potential of this open-source work and is now allowing Greg Kroah-Hartman to work full time on developing free software drivers that are free of charge to companies that are interested. Not only is Greg willing to develop these free drivers but over 100 other developers already have stepped up to the plate to provide development help.

    It's great that this is taking place, but I'm interested in how many companies have taken up this offer and put these developers to work. Does anyone have any information on this?

      Hello!

      It would be great if these drivers where dual-licensed, so that *BSD could also include them...

      Ciao,

        Great initiative. It would be interesting to know on which drivers they will be working.
