    I applaud Intel for starting to plug this major hole. This looks
    promising.

    I took a look at the website and see the GPL driver and the closed
    firmware.

    Is it is really *firmware*, in that it loads and executes purely within
    the Intel PRO/Wireless 2100 itself and not in the linux kernel on the
    main CPU? If so, bravo!

    Does a similar effort exist for the upcoming Sonoma 802.11a/b/g
    component? Will Linux support be available for Sonoma at launch?
