  • ckb-next

    RGB Driver for Linux

    Though in Linux-land, its mostly other devices, like USB things where it is far more common to have community drivers instead. My own keyboard uses ckb-next instead.

  • corsair-protocol

    Documentation for the Corsair protocol (as we understand it)

    Further, see projects like ckb-next which reversed enough of the Corsair keyboards to write not just drivers, but GUI tools as well. From these and using wireshark they are able to capture the raw firmware images and how the device works. Then there is the everything Asahi Linux which is working on getting Apple M1(+) hardware working. Do you think Apple is providing ANY support to the Asahi project?

  • mesa-dist-win

    Pre-built Mesa3D drivers for Windows

    There's a project working on it, actually! It's not perfect, obviously, but the fact that there are people working on it is pretty cool. Definitely not ready for the average power user to install, if it ever will be, but it's there. https://github.com/pal1000/mesa-dist-win
