  1. You think they can pay someone to update their damn Audiophile cards to work in Vista yet? I mean come on, it’s way over due, no betas even! They just don’t give a crap about their older hardware, only interested in new products.

  2. I hate to say it – but I think that this is a sign of things to come.

    Vista was a big disappointment for a lot of Windows users, and Apple’s doubled its share of the laptop market in the last year. As good as Apples laptops are, I’d expect to see developers moving more of their attention to OS X. In fact, it may not be long before we see Sonar showing up on OS X.
