KNDISwrapper is half-done, but far from half-baked

This will help all users of the KDE desktop. If your favorite distro already has a distro good for you. If you like the commandline so much, you should use a terminal - no X for you!

Secondly, the screenshot at kde-apps promises to not just install the driver, but to also configure your wireless device. I have ubuntu fiesty (gnome) on two machines with wireless devices and it was a pain to configure the devices.Ndiswrapper was not too bad, but WPA2 setup was difficult. If this app does it all in one swoop, that would make life easy for a lot of people.

I'm fairly technically competent and have been using linux as my primary OS since '96. However, there are only so many hours in a day ...so good on KNDISwrapper!
