you can't really subtract R&D and packaging cost and say it doesn't count as that is an expense that needs to be covered somehow.

So, can anyone link me to Daniel_K's Vista drivers? I may as well download them if Creative isn't going to do anything about it themselves.

If Daniel really disliked Creative because of their actions, then he would have released source code for the drivers already.

I still think my Azuntech X-Fi Prelude is the best Sound Card I have ever used or ever will use. Although, I've not used it on a Vista system before, I never knew there were incompatibilities.

They are linked within the last few pages somewhere... too lazy to find em again

I was assuming the poster was referring to lost profits as that is what counts most.



edit: Just to be clear, I meant to subtract R&D and ad. from the $150, not the $70.

Are there even Dainel_K drivers for the Auzentech X-Fi Prelude, if so, let me know, that would be sweet.

So it seems that Creative made a big mistake. A very poorly handled PR situation.

No I was reading through thread and it seems that the main thing is the poor driver support. That being said what features does one loose when going from XP to Vista? What are the features that this person was enabling? I really have not noticed and down sides of my Audigy 2ZS under Vista other than the bloody mic not working and thats a Vista issue it seems. Also some bad sound sometimes over Vent.
