Some of our fellow Ubuntu users are putting together software to automatically detect and install wireless drivers for a variety of wireless cards and they need our help. If your wireless connection is working, please run the command and post the result on the Ubuntu forums thread linked to below.
This is the only deterrent to Linux on many laptops.

This was never actually meant to be a Ubuntu thing. It doesn't matter which distribution you're using; running that command and posting the output would be a great help. It'll be written in Python and licensed under the GPL. The authors intend to contact several distributions if word doesn't get out automatically.
The best way to get wireless working in Linux distros is of course to get open source drivers written, committed to the kernel and distributed in the distros. This is happening but is a slow process without specifications, so things like this application will be useful to some in the short term.

sounds interesting, but I don't think everyone has a sed command though.
