Thread: ANN: Intel mentions Linux support for Centrino(TM) WLAN chip

  1. ANN: Intel mentions Linux support for Centrino(TM) WLAN chip

    Intel(TM) has updated their Centrino(TM) Mobile Technology page[1] to mention
    that: "A Linux driver for the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 wireless network
    connection is currently under development", albeit without an expected
    date of release. This seems to be a result of the "Intel Support of
    Centrino Under Linux Petition"[2], which has got almost 5,000
    subscriptions during a few weeks. Laptops based on the Centrino(TM)
    features are already very popular in the Linux community. For almost
    all Centrino based laptops there are installation reports[3]
    available.

    If you probe the e-mail 'support' addresses given in the contact
    information, you will find that the responses are automatically generated
    marketing gibberish, rather than a response from a real human. It only
    takes a few e-mails to reach this conclusion.

    If this is not the case, then the entities that responded to my inquiries
    at Intel do not live on this planet, giving 'outsourced support' an
    entirely new meaning...
