Re: [linux-tr] Madge Token Ring cards

Tell Madge: "Shame it could not be open source like IBM's Token-Ring driver."
8^)  Hehe -- I couldn't resist.

BTW -- the olympic driver is great -- it's been up and running as an internal
IceCast server for a week now, and seems quite robust!  Whoohoo!

Subject:  [linux-tr] Madge Token Ring cards

Talking of Madge, I have been contacted by the product marketing manager for
madge token ring adapters.  He is looking for feedback on their new driver, how
/ whether it worked, whether the distribution method is ok etc.

I would be interested in getting the feedback from the linuxtr list and putting
together a consolidated reply to Madge, hopefully so they can improve the driver
where necessary.  (Especially if the driver falls over.)

They are also looking to quote me (aaahhh) for a press release they want to make
at the end of this month.  I will probably put together something like:
Nice to see that hardware manufacturers are now taking Linux seriously, shame
the driver couldn't be open source etc.  If anybody has any good lines about the
Linux, Open Source etc I would like to hear them.
