If you're happy fine. On a practical basis, I'd never be happy with
such drivers - I'd avoid buying that hardware in the first place.
And yes, I guess its up to the company ultimately - IMHO it should
*not* be, there should be a law mandating that fullest available
programming information be included either with the hardware or
downloadable. However, when your hardware is not special, when its
essentially like most other hardware, its *definitely* damn impolite
to not provide specs. I dont understand how people like yourself can
be happy with such, but hey.
