Compared with 2.6.13, the 2.6.14 kernel includes changes “all over the place,” said Torvalds. The big change in the standard kernel is that it now includes Centrino Wi-Fi support.
Many Linuxes, such as SUSE 10 and Xandros 3 already support Centrino through the use of ipw2xxx drivers and Linux’s hotplug infrastructure. This enables the Centrino cards or mini-adaptor’s firmware to be switched out with a Linux-compatible interface.
