> Subject: BSD Support for Centrino
> I am a regular user of the BSDs as a systems administrator for many
> years, not to mention a published technical writer and someone with
> heavy involvement in the New York City User Group scene.
> I would like to express my frustration at Intel's lack of interest in
> supporting the BSDs with their Centrino platform. Providing the BSD
> developers the necessary documentation at minimum is critical.
> The BSDs, as you may be aware, are not a new and ephemeral operating
> system family. The origins come from the 1970's and they continue
> their strong presence in whole industries, such as with ISPs, and
> whole professions, such as with those involved in network security,
> like myself.
> I implore you to join with AMD, VIA, Adaptec and others who take open
> source software seriously. The developers of the BSD community are
> committed to porting important technologies to their operating system
> family. A similar commitment from Intel would be welcomed.
> I look forward to your follow-up.
> George Rosamond, GSEC
