Enough is enough... Consumers have been having issues with them for years. They have lost thousands of consumers over recent events (mostly vista) and they can't just ignore this.. it would cost them millions.

lol do you really think that creative will just ignore this? they only have a few choices, 1. loose a lot of customers, and fail. or 2. give in to the customers and earn back their trust to keep their reign.

Creative makes DECENT products. I don't think that everyone should be in such a huff as this, but they really aren't superior to anyone in the sound card market. It's like calling Zalman superior...

WRONGO. They do NOT make superior products because others do beat them. No company should be given a chance because their not perfect. I don't give a damn if youre perfect or not, you do not screw me over. Ever.

well, for alot of people - the only way to get X-Fi working on Vista is these drivers which Creative has just decided to drop for them. Some people can have X-Fi on their computers just fine, but for people like me - it doesn't work properly and results in all kind of errors. Even busted my entire OS at one time.

The boycott site looked up Alexa tracking from many big sites (ours included) and they estimate that this knowledge has thusfar been seen by over 30 million people worldwide

No not every company is perfect but I can't bring myself to feel sorry for Creative in this case. They advertised products as Vista ready when in fact they weren't. One person came along and actually resolved this (which their in-house engineers apparently couldn't) only to be asked to stop to avoid conseqences. There seem to be an awefully lot of upset people with a history of bad support from Creative either way...

and you're shocked that people are fed up with being "forced" to rebuy products that are physically no different than what they have, just to get drivers or software that they already bought in the first place? Prove to me that that's not a shady practice and then i'll buy another creative product. They know they make better physical products, but the software severely handicap the so called "product."




It's about time we use our buying power and show them that this type of practice is not allowed and will no longer be tolerated!
