A new hope...

Published on: 0000-00-00

I hope that this article comes true.

Software drivers, the little pieces of code that let a computer's operating system talk to the various hardware devices like printers and scanners, are a chronic pain for Linux companies like WireSpring. Writing them is expensive and adds basically no value to our software. Not writing them (and thus not having them) means that we can't support all of the hardware that our customers want.

Fortunately, there are a lot of good people out there who have written drivers for hardware, and they work great. We've contributed to some, as have many other companies. But for now, it's still an uphill battle to make sure that FireCast supports all this stuff correctly.

Come on Intel. Don't let us down.
