Ubuntu 8.10 – At last. 😉
OpenBSD 4.4 – Early. 🙂

OpenBSD 4.4 finally has support for my Huawei E220 UMTS/G3 modem (a.k.a. “T-Mobile Web & Walk Box Micro”) in the default installation. Granted, that’s at least one year late. Nevertheless, I have already used the E220 with an OpenBSD snapshot release, several months ago. The really good thing is that the OpenBSD implementation of the Huawei E220 serial interface runs circles around the shady E220 hack that is still required to get the thing up and running on Linux. 🙂
