I've heard from people that wireless ethernet cards aren't supported by linux because the companies won't release drivers. However, I read something else that implied that there were cards that were supported. Is it just certain companies that won't release drivers? I want to get a laptop for college next year with just Linux on it, but I want to make sure I can make use of the hotspots all around campus (yay for Iowa State)

I've heard that the eMachines M5312 notebook is great on Linux *cough*.
It's a great computer on Windows also.
It has a broadcom WLAN card, which does have Linux drivers that seem to work for most people.
A guy gets on a bus and starts threatening everybody: "I'll integrate you! I'll differentiate you!!!" So everybody gets scared and runs away. Only one person stays. The guy comes up to him and says: "Aren't you scared, I'll integrate you, I'll differentiate you!!!" And the other guy says: "No, I am not scared, I am e to the power of x."
