Creative frees Sound Blaster driver code

Postby ddavid123 » Fri Nov 07, 2008 11:46 pm

"At long last, Creative Labs has released the full source code for its SoundBlaster X-Fi audio cards. Released yesterday under the General Public License (GPL) 2, the X-Fi and X-Fi Titanium 32bit/64bit drivers replace previous X-Fi drivers released only as object code for select 64-bit Linux kernels."

Looks like free software is becoming popular!

Microsoft Windows, as easy to break as it's name suggests!

Linux, as cool as cool can get!

I saw this too - lets hope that we soon see a usable driver

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I have a beautiful 128 bit X-FI sitting on my workbench for when it does.
