Hello, Chris.

Maybe because you don't want to be caught in a Micro$oft single vendor 
trap, and you believe that software doesn't have to be proprietary?

I share your frustration, though, because I still have to use the NDIS 
driver to get a normal WiFI connection speed on my Asus A6000 notebook!

Hang on in there :-)
