Windows The geek world might be all over Windows 7, and the rest of the world might be sticking to Windows XP for now, but there is also this Windows Vista operating system lingering around. Microsoft has just released the final version of the second service pack for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

And neither of my soundcards are supported, and probably never will be either. SB Live! and SoundMax AD1888 don't have digitally signed drivers available and there is no way to force Win7 to accept non-signed ones, and I am not going to buy new soundcards just because an OS refuses to accept what I have.


If I had posted a comment in response to a new version of a Linux distro being released and called it a failure for not supporting all my hardware, I'd get at least 900 replies that it is the hardware vendor's fault for not providing up to date drivers. In this case, I agree with them, especially when it comes to Creative... they seem notoriously bad about not releasing drivers for newer Windows versions in hopes that you'll go out and buy one of their latest cards.
