So, this is the card that the Samsung R480 Laptop has inside of it. It works superbly (at least with 10.04 Ubuntu which is what I tested with). No, need for any proprietary drivers or restricted hardware. The card installed and worked perfectly absolutely no issues here.
I wish Broadcom could be more like this.
Also, on a sidenote the Samsung R480 laptop is the bomb. I took my Ubuntu LiveCD to BestBuy and tested it out before buying it, and absolutely everything was detected and functioning (well I havent tested the Blu-ray player yet), which amazed me because this seems like you dont get that much functionality on the newest laptops.
