Creative Labs to Release Live! Drivers as Open Source

Good news for the Open Source community:
"Creative Labs has sent word that they have decided to embrace the open source philosophy for their Sound Blaster Live drivers. They have decided to branch their code tree for the SB-Live into 2 dedicated sets of drivers. One set will be for Linux / Unix and be opensource, while the other will be for Windows, BeOS, Linux, and Mac (binaries only). They hope that by doing this they will be serving their users best."
