"The linux drivers petition hosted by Libranet has now passed the 50,000 mark.

The petition hopes to encourage manufacturers of PC devices to make available their specifications to free software and open source developers so that drivers can be written.

While the goal of 2,000,000 signatures may not be easily achievable, one or two hundred thousand signatures may make manufacturers aware that an ever growing number of Linux and Open Source software users is a market to be considered.

Some manufacturers are already working with developers and by singning Libranet's petition you can help in this endevour."
