Intel Support of Centrino Under Linux Petition

Intel Support of Centrino Under Linux Petition

Three months after Intel has released their new technology, laptops based
on the Centrino(TM) features are already very popular in the Linux
community. For almost all Centrino based laptops from different
manufacturers there are installation reports[1] available.

But the "Intel Support of Centrino Under Linux Petition"[2] states
"currently support is quite lacking and only half of the technology has
any form of drivers. Intel has flipped on the issue of Linux. When
Centrino was introduced they reported that Linux would indeed be
supported. Now, after conversing with them, they have said that they
have no plans at all to support Linux with respect to Centrino any more
than they have." [3][4][5]

Please support the petition.

LOL! That's funny, if it weren't true. Oh well, it's iBook all the way.
