[NH] Daniel_k calls it quits

Quote:
We were under the impression that Creative and driver modder Daniel Kawakami had reached an agreement where Daniel could continue supplying Creative sound card owners with patches without angering the Creative legal department. Apparently not, since he has now posted a message over at the Creative forums where he says that he received a second letter of seize and desist from Creative. He has now decided to stop releasing patches and fixes, because he believes that he would only mislead buyers that they would be able to get full functionality with Creative sound card when Creative so obviously wants to limit them and doesn't want them unlocked. This is of course entirely Creative's choice, but far from appreciated by the consumers.

They sent him a second cease and desist? A bit heavy handed given that they already opened a dialogue with the guy. Whatever, if Creative wants to keep their cards crippled I'll just go somewhere else for my next audio upgrade

*News Just In* As Creative sees a decline in sales of new products as uses finally decide they can't make half decent drivers, other sound card produces see a noticable increase in sales.

I ditched my X-Fi Fatal1ty back in Sepember 2007 and picked up a Xonar D2. Needless to say I haven't looked back since.

I must confess that I'm surprised that it's taken people so long to suss out that Creaive cards are lame under Vista though. Roll on the C-Media CMI8788 recommendations.

They are deliberately misleading people, and i can only hope thier soundcard sales plummet.
