Sure, they say the third time's a charm, but at this point, all "charm" in the grueling
802.11n ratification process has evaporated. Moving ever-so-slightly ahead of schedule
, the IEEE's 802.11 working group has "unanimously approved Draft 1.10 of the 802.11n WiFi spec," and has now passed it along to the entire membership of the IEEE
for final approval. Of course, we've certainly been down the unfortunate road
before, but hopefully the folks in charge will give it the thumbs-up we all need to sanely move on with our wireless lives. Notably, there's "no set timeline" for when it expects an approval / denial decision, but if the membership does give this draft the green light, "it will be the final 802.11n specification." Now, let's all cross our collective fingers for some positive (and hasty) decision making.
