== Project Description ==
Most of the devices fedora supports actually only use a small amount of the hardware that is on the device. Whether it is something simple like graphics and sound or more complex features such as GYRO, GPS, FM Radio, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc. There's also some other devices that would be interesting to support like the Snowball, Origen, or even the Vivaldi Tablet. Some definitely need FW and hence probably packaging if it's not in the linux-firmware dumping ground. Having considered all of this information, it is our intention to enable WiFi & Bluetooth on the Trim Slice board using Fedora 17 as our platform.<br /><br />

== Project Contributor(s) ==
Here are some Trim-Slice Projects in motion: [ Trim-Slice Projects]<br /><br />
As you can see, there are many projects being researched, each with their own little community. We would have liked to thank everyone involved with these projects individually, but there are too many names to mention. One might consider it to be non-practical to list each individual separately (we are talking about hundreds of people involved).
Instead, we would like to thank EVERYONE involved with these projects as a whole, as their research is helping us with our project. It is because of these individuals that the Trim-Slice community thrives. Keep up the good work everyone!!!<br /><br />
That being said, because our research revolves around Fedora, we would like to send out a special thanks to the individuals who's projects are similar to ours:

*HenrikN (Forum Author)<br /><br />
<!-- Name(s) of people casually working on the project, or who have contributed significant help. Include links to personal pages within wiki. Adding the names of your contributors here is a nice way to thank them.
NOTE: only Project Leader(s) should add names here. You should not add your own name to the Contributor list. -->
