Just in case you read that all your hardware is supported under Win2k: If you have a Creative sound card then beware: SB Live!s will work (technically) but will do all their EAX stuff in software, slowing down your games no end. Users with multi-processor systems should be warned that they have no hope in hell of CT ever releasing drivers that don't crash MP systems.
Any other Creative card won't actually have drivers that allow it to do what it says it does on the box.
For example, most owners of SoundBlaster 128s will discover that they have lost all EAX, MIDI, Wide, Reverb, Chorus and joystick port functionality; in addition, their sound cards will suddenly start crackling and producing literally insane amounts of bus noise.
This is because Creative's driver programmers are a bunch of utter fuckwits.
All this would merely be annoying, instead of ludicrous, if Creative announced that support has been dropped; however "unsupported" cards are still being sold with support for "Windows NT 4 and higher". Creative's support staff have made it perfectly clear that they don't hive a damn about their customers.
Hmm. This is turning into somewhat of a rant; perhaps it belongs in Why I don't buy products from Creative any more. Maybe I'll node it after I've slept.
