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. A new Wiki has been launched at LinuxDriverProject.org to kick off this initiative now that Greg can work on this project full time. Greg and his posse of developers are even willing to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements to access a company's specifications and pool of information. In addition to the new project Wiki, Greg has provided additional information on the LinuxDriverProject.org mailing list. Additional information can be found on the Kroah blog.
