It is not a problem but a marketing decision we know nothing about. I
have seen Linux drivers, Windows drivers and Mac drivers from their
site. I am sure that if we asked in a reasonable and polite fashion we
could convince them to release the drivers for *BSD -- or make the Linux
ones in such a way that they work on *BSD.
Hounding them is not going to help. It will harm our cause.

Please, do not do that. It will hinder.
