If you think about it, there's a lot of positives to talk about in this if its true.
OEMs making choices about open driver availability and having that impact a component maker's bottomline in a real quantifiable way. That's actually amazing. That's _the_ story to put in front of every device manufacturer from this point forward. Open your drivers...or lose business like Broadcom did. If its true and they lost significant amounts business revenue because of a lack of a an open driver for their chipsets..they are potentially the best spokebusiness we could hope for to make the case to other hardware companies to get with the program. Doubly so if Broadcom's business perks up in response to having open drivers available.
