"Open Source Effort Will Deliver Low-Cost Wi-Fi for All

"By Katherine Noyes, PCWorld

"One of the great things about open source software is that it doesn't just
bring a wealth of benefits to businesses. Rather, by making low-cost,
high-quality software widely available to everyone, it also has the
potential to change lives around the world.

"Most of us are familiar with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) effort to put
low-cost computer hardware in the hands of the world's poorest people, but a
like-minded project that's less well-known aims to do something similar with
Internet access.

"The goal is to develop low-cost, open source Wi-Fi software, and on
Wednesday Geeks Without Frontiers--an initiative of the not for-profit Manna
Energy Foundation--announced the final development of just such a solution."
