Linux drive development model turned upside down!

In what one Slashdot-er describes as an ‘epic announcement‘, Greg Kroah-Hartman has offered up the services of the Linux Kernel developer horde as free labor for device driver development.

No longer will hardware companies have to spend more than a moment to get a fully supported driver written by the experts in the field.

I guess we will see how this scales.

Rock on Greg…

    It’s so frustrating to rummage through your software or hardware manufacturer’s Web site for the right drivers. I guess it’s the same for all OS, whether it’s Linux or Windows. Speaking of Windows, a friend of mine told me about http://www.radarsync.com/vista, a complete repository of Vista drivers. I hope there would be Web sites such as radarsync’s for all OS.
