When Creative was assuring us of a Linux driver for the X-Fi sound cards, I included a X-Fi Fatality with the media bay when I dropped $3000 on my computer. However, as soon as Creative announced that the Linux driver would be delayed indefinitely due to Vista, I took the proper way out: I sold the X-Fi.
The Linux driver has been "Coming Soon" for a long time and I am not going to hold my breath waiting for support. I won't buy another X-Fi product and I will stick to the products that DO work under Linux. Intel has supported Linux wonderfully and their onboard sound works great for most things. If I need a better card, I'll invariably go with a mfg that <3s Linux as much as I do.
