No more draft N, 802.11N is finally here!

http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-10351215-94.html

"As predicted last month, the IEEE has finally approved the 802.11n high-throughput wireless LAN standard.

Finalization of the new wireless networking standard--which is capable of delivering throughput speeds up to 300 megabits per second (and even higher)--took exactly seven years from the day it was conceived, or six years from the first draft version. The standard has been through a dozen or so draft versions. "

I wonder how many vendors are going to crap on their customers and say "Sorry, you need new hardware, yours can't be upgraded"?

Thankfully D-Link won't be one of them: D-Link Routers Comply with 802.11n Standard

So does this mean the routers on that list are going to get a firmware update or something to comply with the standard, or are they working the standard as they are? (I'm damn-near illiterate when it comes to anything more than basic networking, so I don't even know what the difference between draft and standard is)
