Idle thought. I don't use NDISwrapper but it seems quite a few people rely on it to enable their wireless adapters. NDISwrapper only works with Windows XP drivers. Microsoft is discontinuing XP support next April. Will manufacturers cease writing XP drivers for their new hardware at the same time? Is NDISwrapper being developed to work with Windows 7/Windows 8 drivers? If I were considering a new hardware purchase, this would be a consideration. If this is discussed elsewhere, mods please feel free to delete.
