The API doesn't look interoperable with that of the other card, though it will be interesting to see what solutions are presented to make drivers which work equally well for both systems.

Nice. Looks like they have a few devices that can actually use the card too! Well done to all involved -- Steve Knutson, Palmerston North

Personally I am going to let the dust settle before I even consider buying a USB card from any source. It will be very very sad if we end up with the situation where a driver exists for a specific device that will only work with the USB cards from a specific manufacturer. -- Victor Shears, Maidstone
