Netgear’s open source router

Netgear has gone open source with one of it’s new routers. The Netgear WGR614L does not come with any first-party firmware at all. It allows users to choose from a few different “distros” of open firmware, such as DD-WRT and Tomato. Who knows maybe we will see even distros of Linux for it. This is a huge steep in the right direction for Netgear. I am happy to see companies supporting open source, maybe other router manufactures can take a hint from Netgear.
