Draft-N Now Final-N, Nerd Democracy Works

That draft-N/pre-N 802.11n WiFi router you just picked up is now one step closer to being all officialize, the current draft has passed the working group’s needed 75% margin of the vote with room to spare. That means that if you’ve been on the edge about upgrading to the latest, fastest, mostest rangiest WiFi standard because it’s not, like, standard, you need wait no more.

If you already have your N router, it’s all good for you, too, as the final passing draft is the draft that’s been in retail boxes for a couple of months now, meaning this is good news for everyone. Yay, IEEE!
