creative is a monopoly in the sound card business, they must have a good 90% of all soundcards sold (estimating). so you are telling me essentially the biggest soundcard company with essentially no competition has no obligation whatsoever to make their 1-4 year old products support a new o/s that was being developed for 5? if they were not a monopoly this would have never happened, plain and simple.

i know as you said anyone can get it by bittorrent etc etc..
but just the fact they are taking advantage of those who dont know is just wrong, just to make a few more bucks in a market you already dominate

creative is a monopoly? I believe most of users never buy sound card but just on board audio...
That about the same thing to say than most of graphic device come from Nvidia and ATI... In fact first seller is Intel...
