2006-07-26 10:36:36 Mantas Kriaučiūnas None: statusexplanation Ubuntu has big usability problem with lots of network cards, which are not supported by open source drivers, but works fine with ndiswrapper and closed-source Windows drivers from CD, included with network card. In Ubuntu Live and install CD's and in default installation Ubuntu should include not only ndiswrapper-utils package, but also info from and, I think. Without this info users, who have only ndiswrapper supported network cards, can't connect to internet, even advanced linux users can't :( Best decision would be to include some user-friendly wizard to install drivers for network cards, which doesn't have open source drivers in ubuntu, but works through ndiswrapper and closed-source drivers for Windows.
