    You are all crazy with Creative on top. You have any idea how much i spent for SB Live! Platinum in beginning of y2k??? Just to find it now there will be no driver for my perfectly working sb card??? Big deal to do some drivers for Creative but big deal for me to since the voice is crapy now with some fake vista drivers. Grr, make me never buy anything from Creative again!!

    I share your anger too, Killy. I have spent a fortune too on a SB Live card and now does not work because of no driver support in Vista.

    Also I have heard a lot of noise made by Creative users on the web. Guess it is time for Creative to rethink their strategy or to lose the customers forever.
