It may not be new, but it's something worth trumpeting, because most
non-geeks are probably unaware. 

I've been aware of people writing their own device drivers for years -
but overt statements like this are important, should be repeated, and
efforts made to spread the word.

Seems to me it's about the mind of the market, rather the fundamental
truths of the activity or offer.
