open-source drivers

is there any word on the openness of drivers? a big part of the appeal of the neo is that the majority of the drivers (where legal) are open-source. any widespread adoption of these modules will probably stall straight away if there are no open drivers/useful documentation available myfanwy 00:59, 7 November 2007 (CET)

They provide the Angstrom Linux which is based on Open Embedded. So I would assume that drivers are the standard drivers of the Linux kernel. Well, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS and GSM may only be available as (USB) serial data interfaces to some black-box modules.

emulation

in lieu of developing on actual hardware, an emulator would be mighty useful. does one exist for the compulab hardware? is it much of a process to put one together? myfanwy 01:22, 7 November 2007 (CET)
