Default Broadcom Announce Open Source Drivers For Linux.

Quote:
Broadcom would like to announce the initial release of a fully-open
Linux driver for it's latest generation of 11n chipsets. The driver,
while still a work in progress, is released as full source and uses the
native mac80211 stack. It supports multiple current chips (BCM4313,
BCM43224, BCM43225) as well as providing a framework for supporting
additional chips in the future, including mac80211-aware embedded chips.
The README and TODO files included with the sources provide more
details about the current feature set, known issues, and plans for
improving the driver.

All I can say is, WOW.
