More on DOOM 3 Source Release

To be honost I dislike Creative Labs as a company. They have a griphold on the soundcard market with EAX (though some companies have reverse engineered it with limited success)-- and yet continue to release overpriced mediocre sound cards. They update their drivers maybe once every 2 years (if at all). I recently bought an ASUS XONAR DX soundcard and I love it for sound editing, though it only supports up to EAX 2.0.
After the aggressive affair with cock-blocking id with Doom 3's shadow technique (on a patent Creative made a decade before hardware was even capable of running said method), I find their reputation to be a crappy taste in my mouth.
