LXer: OpenBSD: Intel Accused Of Being "An Open Source Fraud"

Published at LXer:

Damien Bergamini started a thread on the OpenBSD -misc mailing list in which he summarized Intel's policy toward open-source software being to "make us look like we're open-source friendly by opening a project on sourceforge," and, "give the open-source community the bare minimum so that they can serve as our beta-testers." Damien released a reverse engineered blob-free driver for an Intel wireless chipset earlier this year, but work is slow as Intel does not freely provide documentation to the chipset.
