Reply to comment by nulloperation in thoughts on GPL? by Ashy

I really wish your last link was more discoverable. Those ath9k chipsets are not particularly common, especially in newer hardware. Most people want 5 GHz and ac/ax functionality.

Yea, it was on an older 32-bit laptop. We need more free wifi drivers.

I think that Debian with non-free wifi driver is an improvement over Windoze though.

Going back to the GPL, it was actually effective in getting Linksys to publish their code leading to the creation of the OpenWRT Linux distro for routers.
