Im not sure if it is just me, and I havent tried either the broadcom based
cards, or driverloader specifically, but isnt this a monsterous con?

Half the point of the various nixes people use around here, is that they
have reliable and open source hardware support. Now it would seem that,
even worse than getting some cruddy binary-only driver support, horror of
horrors, we have to use the *actual doze drivers themselves*.

Could it get any worse? It would seem that with G, some manufactuer's
commitment is in fact getting worse, not better.
