"Theo de Raadt, the leader of the OpenBSD project and a
vociferous crusader for hardware (especially networking)
documentation, recently went public with his concerns about the One
Laptop Per Child project's choice to use a wireless networking chip
from Marvell, a company with an unusually poor record of supporting
free software operating systems, in the 2B1 laptop computer that it
is developing. Marvell is unwilling to freely supply hardware
documentation so that programmers can create device drivers that
properly interface with its wireless chips, and beyond that,
Marvell also refuses to allow OpenBSD and other free software
operating systems to freely distribute firmware binaries that are
necessary to use Marvell wireless devices. So why, then, was it
chosen for the OLPC project, which claims to 'support open source?'
If de Raadt's email was the first you heard of the conflict, you're
probably confused as to what's going on..."
