Submission + - MadWifi Goes Completely Open Source (kerneltrap.org)

An anonymous reader writes: The MadWifi Linux wireless developers have announced that they will be focusing entirely on their new completely open source ath5k driver, moving away from their existing "blob"-based driver. The driver adds support for the popular Atheros-based wireless networking cards, and this new open source version can finally be merged into the mainline Linux kernel, benefiting all Linux users. KernelTrap has an interesting article covering the recent announcement, and the progress and remaining issues surrounding the licensing of the new Linux driver.
