    Citing the 'growing base of customers using Linux,' Broadcom makes
    historic move to deepen support for the open source OS

It was exciting news back in September when Broadcom unveiled brcm80211 
the fully open and Linux-compatible driver for several of its 802.11n 
wireless chipsets. Now, however, it looks like the company will soon 
make what promises to be an even bigger announcement.

Specifically, in a move that will be officially announced on Monday, the 
company has taken its Linux 
support to the next level by joining the Linux Foundation, with plans to 
extend its open development and collaboration with the Linux community.
