"buy". Try that again: "buy". Nice word, isn't it? If you buy,
you may demand. At least in theory.
ndiswrapper isn't about competing with other companies and vendors,
it isn't about taking on anyone. It's about getting some card you're
owning to *work*.
Nobody is selling anything. ndiswrapper is free. Gratis. How good ndiswrapper
is, is all up to *you*. If you see something you want to change or improve,
fix it. If it's beyond your abilities, you could maybe suggest something just
in case anyone else gets interested, but what you cannot do is just ramble.
However, as in this case it's about documentation, and you're keen about it,
you *can* do something about it. I myself am completely fine with just the wiki,
so I wouldn't volunteer. The fact that you *can* do something about what
you think is missing should be encouraging, as that's certainly not something
you can do about stuff you buy from vendors.
For what it's worth, I'm a ndiswrapper _user_ and I'm very happy with the
fact that giri, who does almost all the work (the rest of us are mostly
fiddling with small bits of the wiki) concentrates on the technical low-down
stuff: My wireless card is now working!
You can provide patches and updates. Jump in, the water is fine!
