500 shares = $75 lost.

It was posted earlier that one financial website listed Creative has have something like 2.4 million shares out there

I'll bet uninformed investors want answers...

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.
Its not even that you loose some features, its that features they claim you get on the box are intentionally disabled.

Not as big as Newegg, but they handle decent traffic... notice what it says under each Creative product.

If you are so disgruntled by their products why did you continue time and time again to buy them????
I bought them within like a year of each other. They started failing when I had them all in my possession at the same time. It's not like I bought one, it broke, bought something else, it broke, then went out to buy 2 other things that broke.

And my friends had got their stuff around the same time I did, and ours started all falling apart together.

Need more eTailers to do that, then will Creative truly take a hit...

Yes the riot made a big hit, but with no e-tailers selling their products... Ouch.

Uneducated bandwagon moron? Yeah, that sounds about right. I will grant you one thing, that the PR guy is probably a tool who overreacted.

Have fun with your virtual lynch mob. Maybe if you're really lucky, thousands of people at Creative will lose their jobs. If you really play your cards right, maybe some will become depressed when they can't find work and commit suicide! Wow! You're changing the world, one person at a time with your posts! You'll be able to tell your kids, "Check out my posts! I helped kill a giant, evil, monopolistic corporation that intentionally screwed people because of their own greed. I showed them!". You can finally be really be proud about something you did on the Internet!

There's even whiny little snits complaining that they have to PAY for support! OMG! Call the authorities! Have you looked at how support works in the computer industry in the last 15 years? You'd be hard pressed to find a corporation that doesn't charge you for out of warranty repair and tech support help. Microsoft= $ for support. Apple= $ for support. HP = $ for support. Seriously, someone posted their little complaint that a Creative support rep asked them to pay for support. Boo-frickity hoo! Whatta bunch of babies. Toughen up. Grow a pair. It's a freakin' SOUND CARD!

Vista's a POS anyway. I'm using an X-Fi with the latest games like COD4 so what the hell would I need Vista for? Jeez. If you love Vista and motherboard audio so much, don't let the door hit you on the way out. I've heard MB audio compared to my X-FI and MB audio blows.

Let me spell the situation out for you. Reaper posts some news. And then we have someone who just created on account start to bash him and stand up for creative. I'm using an X-Fi on XP and couldnt be happier with it. I just call it as I see them.

Yeah, only if other e-tellers do this will they do anything. Until that they don't really care because no one complained loud until now.

If we wanted something done, it should have been done over a year ago when Vista came out.

At this point they don't care.

If this was such a big problem, why wait till now guys?? The right thing to do would have been stinkin' up a forum when it first arose, not wait until someone breaches their EULA and takes IP from them, let them say something , and then jump on their back.... Thats the equivalent of spanking your child 1 year down the road for something they did today. You address the problem at the source when it happens or you keep your mouth shut, especially when you are in the wrong.

Some companies have sdks and open source drivers, Creative is not one of them. Live with it.
