  It is not overstate.
  In every case where it says "newer boards use ...", I am only finding
non-Prism cards in the channels.

  Not sold anymore. 
  If you are still getting things, you are getting them current inventory.

  I have been emailing Intersil's "Warf, Brian (GSPN)" <bwarf at>,
about where to get devices, specifically PCI ones, and he was a bit helpful,
but generally not.

  It looks like HawkingTech's WP251 is still Prism, but I can't seem to get
it. Yes, using Cardbus+adapters works, but is sometimes physically less
reliable, and there usually aren't as many antenna options.
