If Linux and particularly Ubuntu & Mint can steal more market share from Microsoft and Apple you better believe manufacturers will start providing open source drivers for their wifi cards.
Back in the mid 90’s Apple had the exact same problem and a few years later the iMac and iPod changed computing forever. All Linux needs is a similar event; I thought Google Chrome or Android might be it, then I was thinking a bad economy would make users creative and try Linux.
Perhaps it will be more of a grass roots movement but I’m sure it will happen eventually.
What do you think it will take to push Linux’s market share from roughly 2% to say 6%?
