    Intel 'Sonoma' Centrino Platform

    I don’t know about you, but I love freedom; I hate to sit at my desk and work all day. However, there used to be restrictions – I needed a network connection in order to be able to fire emails off and browse the net. Well times have changed and computers have evolved. I have been running a WiFi network for about 3 years now and for sure it has changed the way I work.

    I have got Gentoo running on my Centrino (Dothan Pentium-M.) It's not setup fully yet, but speedstep is working and all the drivers are loaded.
