I've heard of companies supplying open-source Linux drivers, so I wasn't ruling out the existence of open-source Windows drivers. Doesn't surprise me if we do have the bulk of open-source Windows drivers, though, since Windows is a closed-source platform. Whether or not to include closed-source drivers is a bit of an issue in the Linux world, as part of a greater concern over binary blobs. The situation is a bit different here in Windows Land, though.Haos wrote:Open-source drivers??
We are currently in possession of largest NT open-source driver collection. Besides us its pretty non-existent.
Maybe if ReactOS ever takes off we will see companies release more drivers as open-source. Still not quite relevant to ReactOS itself, but it would be nice for the open-source movement as a whole. We shouldn't be concerned about driver availability as opposed to corporate backing for development of ReactOS itself. Let's try to stay on topic here.
