Free Linux Driver Development Questions and Answers

A quick follow up to this post. It's wonderful to see that Greg's Linux driver announcement got so many responses that he had to write a FAQ. I'd like to highlight one point from the FAQ:
Q: This is a lame publicity stunt, Linux development has always been done this way.
A: Well, the NDA program that we have set up with The Linux Foundation is new. But yes, other than that, this is exactly how Linux kernel development has been done. But it is good to point out exactly how it all works for those who are not familiar with how it works.

When you do this day in and day out for a long time, it's sometimes too easy to forget that things you take for granted are not common knowledge. It's important to take a step or two back every once and a while to get some perspective. Kudos to Greg for doing so.
