Dear Manufacturers of hardware

Dear manufacturers of hardware,
I'm not sure if you've noticed this little thing called Linux out there in the world, but if it's not too much trouble, would you mind making either drivers available, or release the specifications for your hardware so some enterprising soul can work on it? This isn't so much a request... the community is strong, and will reverse-engineer whatever materials you make available to create drivers. Think of this as a public service announcement. Linux is growing, and with it is the potential to capitalize on hardware sales previously unavailable to you. You can't loose in supporting Linux, and you'll piss people off (namely me) if you don't start doing a better job about it. That goes double for you, Broadcom.
