Libranet’s Linux Drivers Petition passes 50,000 signatures

[ Thanks to Jon Danzig
for this announcement: ]

“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.”
