Already tried that, believe it or not. Hardware Drivers detects no  
proprietary drivers.

>>>> GENERAL TECH NEWS:

>>>> source software), but for all you hackers in training who need instant
>>>> satisfaction or crossplatform vnc0ing, might as well take a look. Might
>>>> be useful if anyone has to team up on projects this semester (though

>>>> Something useful on ycombinator hacker news: Anyone looking to become a
