All,

I've started work on a project to port the current-generation Intel WiFi drivers from Linux to OS X. Right now it's very, very early in a process that looks to be a very, very long one. I have a kext that identifies compatible hardware and loads and digests the matching firmware, but it doesn't yet do important things like, say, connect to a network.
Ammulder, Is the project alive or dropped. I would like to support you. Please let me know your thoughts.

Guys... Do you think I'll be able to learn about any of this stuff in college? I'm starting next year and I feel like it would be a good honors thesis if I can figure how all this works... Excuse my noobiness...
