I have to agree with Jef on this. +1 from me. Yes I use the ati drivers
and the flash plugin but I make sure I use open source ones every
release to see if it's fixed and post appropriate bugs. I did this with
the ipw3945 iwl3945 and now I don't need the ipw3945 drivers.  This is
important because the bugs people report help the dev's fix the issues.
