Ya, shame on Intel, those guys have been mooching off linux and gcc to get there new chips up quickly for years and they can't provide a stinking driver for there wireless chipset. Like a low voltage wireless chipset is something new.... They can take there intellectual property and shove it up there un-intellectual a.... anyway
