User comment:

I just wanted to take the time to thank Linuxant for dedicating their time and effort into making life easier for all of us Linux users. Having a working Winmodem in Linux is one giant leap towards moving away from that assine, monopolistic, bullshit company that will forever remain nameless. I've been using your drivers for over a year now (RH8, RH9, FC1) and decided to purchase the full version to support your work even tho I am going with wireless DSL in less than a week. I am basing what router and pc card to buy from your chipset compatability list to try and minimize compatability problems. Thanks again and you can expect another license purchase soon.
