Intel — Only “Open” For Business

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 2:48 pm

Intel still refuses to work with open source projects such that they can provide their users with proper support for Intel’s hardware products.

As he has done before, Theo de Raadt once again asks users to take action by contacting Intel, telling them what they think of their current policy of not releasing hardware documentation and granting open source projects the right to distribute hardware firmware with their products. Failing to do so only harms users in the way that they risk having unsupported or malfunctioning hardware in their operating system of choice.
