Al >>> Thanks for the info. Just shows how wrong a guess can be! And
the response rate you provide - - give or take another 10%! - feels more
like the relative level of laptop wifi use generally, if the content of
the forums is any guide to a guestimate (not that my track record with
guestimates is very impressive).
If 10%-15% is about right, I wonder whether it goes some way to
explaining why the kernel developers are, historically, perhaps a bit
less bothered about wifi support: not enough people affected; not a
crippling issue for the kernel.
Let's hope the open wifi drivers project will make this area a bit easier.
