Weird, since I have never had an issue with Vista and my X-FI Platinum Fatal1ty Champion. I think there were some issues with the Audigy 2 XS Platinum that I used to own, primarily blue screens and a strange loss of drivers, forcing me to reinstall them.

And it took us this long to use our buying power to send a message to them? c'mon, this should have been pulled during the Audigy 2 series.

With permission from a mod, I have submitted this thread to digg. It allows us to get a big chance for alot of new members as well forcing creative to make good drivers or face consumers. Our servers should be able to handle the load now.

I can't believe the reaction this is generating.

I can't possibly see how this could be an April Fool's Joke. Even if someone from Creative officially said "just kidding!" enough damage has already been done to cost a company (that can't afford to lose money right now) dearly.

I think this is a result of a accumulated consumer frustration with under-par hardware and poor driver support. To put it another way, I think Creative is now getting the backlash for their mistakes, Nvidia's mistakes, ATi's mistakes, and so on. The original thread was enough to "break the camel's back" as people in Creative's forums put it.

I couldn't be happier that something like this has happened. We're in a day and age where mediocre is OK and 'close enough' is all it takes to cut it. There have really been some poor products out lately and it seems they were all born out of a company's desire to hype a product, rush it to the shelves, and make a quick buck.

Maybe this will make the other players realize that they have to start cleaning things up or the same could hold true for them in some fashion.

its really sad that so many people are making a big deal of this.

Nothing is going to come from this, so just relax.

Also anyone that has a brain knows that creative makes the superior products. Anyone that decides to stop selling creative products would be making a huge mistake and would cost their own business thousands.

not every company is perfect and every company has their reasons for doing what they do. I cant believe this comes as a shock to so many people.
