Well, do remember that driver development is very different on free
software operating systems.  Most of the drivers that are supported
and distributed by original manufacturers are absolute garbage.
Maudio calls the OSS driver for the card "supported".  Heh.

It seems like all the best drivers end up maintained by someone in the
community who wants their device to work.  Witness ALSA for a most
obvious, fantastic example ::-)

make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians
have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine
man in the bonds of Hell."
