802.11n is FINALLY Official

"After six years, almost a dozen drafts, and two years of products available under Wi-Fi Alliance certification, IEEE approved the 802.11n wireless standard. 802.1n is also more energy efficient and can make for speedier WiFi on handheld devices without burning through as much battery power."
Got a nice chuckle out of this. I can recall teaching a class on wireless back in 2003 and having a slide that said "n" was coming soon. Given how long the pre "n" products were being sold, I expect we will be seeing pre "m" or whatever the next letter is in the series sometime soon.
