On Linux people don't install driver for "Linksys" or "DLink", but for the actual chipset those cards use. Most of the popular chipsets have good Linux drivers, "Broadcom", "Atheros", etc. Failing that, I have found ndiswrapper to work quite well, too (using Windows wireless drivers).

It's just a standard, anyone can adopt it. And Microsoft did (parts of it) when they worked with IBM on OS/2 -- which never worked out and they went in their own directions :p
Well, the 'X' in the acronym made me believe that it is for *NIX systems only.
