Re: Would you pay $20 for Ubuntu??
I have posted on other threads about this subject.
I believe that there SHOULD be a DVD offered with all/most of the necessary codecs, specifically targeting the beginning Ubuntu user. Hopefully this would help the new user get a better start with a new OS with which they may not be that familiar with.
I also believe that if the software would be offered on DVD, there would be room to offer a small script or application that would detect the Broadcom version of wireless chips and either have a generic driver on the DVD or if possible go to the internet and fetch the correct driver for these apparently hard to configure wireless devices.
Anything to make Ubuntu easier for the beginning Ubuntu user to install and get the OS up and running with as much of the hardware supported as possible would be a great goal to accomplish.
I would support a project of this nature monetarily via a small contribution if possible.
If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.
