to a
-logical port for user land to access. Please refer to the README under 
inputattach
-for details.

+What is input-wacom?
+--------------------
+The Linux Wacom Project manages the drivers, libraries, and documentation for
+configuring and running Wacom tablets under the Linux operating system. The
+project consist of this driver (input-wacom),
+[xf86-input-wacom](https://github.com/linuxwacom/xf86-input-wacom) and
+[libwacom](https://github.com/linuxwacom/libwacom). Our drivers are
+included in most major Linux distributions and provide out-of-the box support
+for a wide variety of Wacom tablets and component devices.
+
+Given this, you will only need this driver if you have a newer Wacom device,
+are running an older operating system, or need a bugfix. If one of these 
situations
+applies to you, 
+[install input-wacom from 
source](https://github.com/linuxwacom/input-wacom/wiki/Installing-input-wacom-from-source)
+by following the instructions in our wiki.

+For developers and others needing additional information please see the
+[wiki](https://github.com/linuxwacom/input-wacom/wiki).
