(inspired by recent traffic on the kernel list)
The following is a list of devices for which the manufacturer either will not provide programming information or will not make that information available under an agreement that allows us to release the source code for the driver.
You are encouraged to voice your displeasure at these manufacturers if you own these products and to refrain from purchasing their products until they adopt a more sensible policy.
Apple Computer, Inc.: Apple has only released programming information as part of the source code for its MkLinux port of Linux to its PowerPC-based Macintoshes. They have not released any programming information for the 680x0 Macintoshes.
Interworks (ICard PCMCIA Ethernet card)
Individual Computers (Catweasel floppy controller): Information on how to program the floppy controller portion of the card is only being released under a license that does not allow us to publish the source code for the driver. Update: The driver for the PC Catweasel has been released under the GPL; writing an Amiga driver may now be much easier.
Radius: Ignores calls about Radius Rockets, Radius Video Cards, SuperMac Video cards, E-Machines Video cards, and RastorOps video cards.
