Creative Story (Update)

. Wednesday, April 2, 2008

Daniel_K aka Daniel Kawakami came out and spoke with Wired. It looks like except accepting donation (to buy more CREATIVE (CREAF) products) his driver modding allowed some of Creative features to run on competing product, which obviously got Creative upset, However practice of charging extra money for some additional driver functions on Windows Vista (btw: Free for Windows XP) is shady at best.

To quote one of best lines from interview - "Creative purposely modified the Audigy drivers to disable some features when Vista is detected and also purposely introduced some bugs to prevent some XP utilities from running."
