Anal Old Men Make One Small Step Toward 802.11n

Good news for 802.11n fans. The IEEE committee has just finished resolving the 12,000 comments—a.k.a. things companies didn't like—about the 802.11n protocol. Draft 2.0 has been advanced with a 100-0 vote with 5 abstentions (you can probably guess how those 5 were going to vote), which means it's now going out for a letter ballot.

If those nerdy, stodgy dudes decide they don't have a problem with the draft, draft 802.11n should become final 802.11n within a few months. Yippee?
