> Subject: BSD Support for Centrino
> Greetings:
> 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
