"Although Broadcom had very good in-house Linux drivers for its wireless cards, which it sold to manufacturers of wireless routers that ran on Linux, it refused to release the drivers to the community, even in binary-only form, or to provide documentation that would assist Linux users in writing their own drivers. Consequently, ndiswrapper was for many years the only way to get Broadcom cards running on Ubuntu and other distributions."
