Libranet's Linux Drivers Petition tops 30,000

Jan 17, 2000, 02:43 (3 Talkback[s])

[ Linux Today reader Jon Danzig writes: ]

The Linux Drivers Petition hosted by Libranet has passed the 30,000 signatures mark. It looks like the open source community is getting behind this one.
From the Web site:

"Linux is hampered by a lack of drivers for some pc devices, notably printers."

"In an effort to help correct this, we are collecting signatures to a petition which will be submitted to the major producers of pc devices."

"It is our hope that we will collect 2,000,000 signatures within a short time and that this will cause these companies to take notice of the need to co-operate with Linux developers in producing Linux drivers for their products."
