Intel preps Centrino Wi-Fi support for Linux

Driver coming... but when?

Intel is to develop Linux drivers for its Centrino platform, providing the open source OS with access to the notebook system's wireless networking technology.

The driver will be released initially under a proprietary licence, but Intel general manager of software and solutions, Will Swope, did suggest that the driver could later move into the open source domain.

In the past, Intel has been highly supportive of bringing Linux to its various processors.

No release schedule has been offered for the driver. ®
