Most of you have probably already seen this, but Broadcom has decided to start open sourcing their drivers.

Quote :

"Broadcom would like to announce the initial release of a fully-open Linux driver for its latest generation of 11n chipsets. The driver, while still a work in progress, is released as full source and uses the native mac80211 stack," wrote Broadcom's Henry Ptasinski in a message on the Linux wireless mailing list.

When the new drivers are mature and are merged into the kernel mainline, it will allow Linux distributions to provide first-class support several common Broadcom wireless chips. According to a Canonical kernel developer, the new drivers will be included in the upcoming Ubuntu 10.10 release and may be backported to the current stable version. The driver currently supports BCM4313, BCM43224, and BCM43225, but it can be extended in the future to support additional Broadcom hardware components.
