Broadcom set to join the Linux Foundation

Katherine Noyes | Jan. 6, 2011
It was exciting news back in September when Broadcom unveiled brcm80211, the fully open and Linux-compatible driver for several of its 802.11n wireless chipsets. Now, however, it looks like the company will soon make what promises to be an even bigger announcement.

As I noted back in September, it's all a testament to the growing power of Linux as a market force. Businesses are turning to it in increasing numbers, and so are individuals. It's great to see companies like Broadcom recognize that this is a significant market that can no longer be ignored.
