DriverLoader licenses for end-users have been affordably priced at USD $19.95 and can now be purchased online from Linuxant’s web store (https://www.linuxant.com/store). Upgrades to future versions will be provided at no extra charge for at least one year or longer. Free 30-day trial licenses also remain available. Due to significant development/support costs, and inconclusive discussions with hardware vendors, it is not possible to make DriverLoader completely free for end-users at this time.
This is ka-huge. I’ve been using the trial version of the Linuxant drivers on my Laptop. It allows me to use my otherwise unusable Broadcom 802.11g chip under Linux. I hope that eventually the wlan-ng project will support the chipset, but the Linuxant drivers are worth every penny of that $19.95.
So far the Linuxant drivers have been working just fine under SuSE 9 and I will definitely be picking up the $19.95 full version of the drivers. Sure, I could stick in my Linksys 802.11b card, but that totally kills the all-in-one nature of my laptop. I was worried that Linuxant would price the drivers out of the range of normal users, but they managed to keep prices below what I am willing to pay.
