True - many varieties and free http://www.fs-driver.org/

If this gets adopted by mainstream vendors as a positive statement that
Micoshaft is unimportant in commodity markets, then there

they can look forward to long battles and losing more chunks of their
business as customers and manufactures withdraw support for
micoshaft products from the market place.
