Creative Driver Hacking - Macmod LIVE episode 18 - 04/08/08 09:32 AM

This is the official forum post for Macmod LIVE episode 18 where we talk about the recent PR nightmare Creative caused by threatening legal action against someone modding their drivers. We'd love to hear your thoughs, and you can use this thread to do that.

great segment guys!

I can't blame Creative for what they did in this situation. However, I do agree with Big-O. I think they could have handled the situation better... In a fashion that gave them some positive press instead of negative. But, I wouldn't expect that. Most companies don't have people who are smart enough to see that...

As Big-O pointed out to me after recording the podcast, VIA has taken a much better stance towards community driver development and open source. It would have been nice to see Creative do something like this instead.
