The Linux Kernel will no longer support RNDIS drivers. A good move? What does this mean for you? Find out here.

Microsoft's RNDIS protocol, short for Remote Network Driver Interface Specification, is a proprietary USB protocol for virtual Ethernet functionality on computers. 

The most common use case of this would be using your phone's mobile network to connect to the internet on your computer via USB, also known as Tethering.

Even though it mainly works on Windows, it has been part of the Linux kernel for a while now.

But that is set to change soon.
