Greetings Andreas.

Great work grinding through all the missing pages!

I have a question about your Template:Discontinued

Does it really mean that the module development is discontinued, or that the card that uses the module is discontinued?

E.g. many people have the Echo cards - what does original developer Giuliano Pochini <> say?

Hello Eliot.
I'm no longer sure...
I think that the developement of the driver (=module) was discontinued, because if the card was discontinued, you would have to add it to dozens of soundcards, starting with SoundBlaster 1.0/2.0/Pro over SoundBlaster 16 and so on, which are no longer available on the market and therefore discontinued.
But: please correct me if I'm wrong.
Also consider that I'm not a developer, just a user.

Yes, you were right and I was wrong... The modules are there, and page shows no sign of any discontinued modules.
I got all confused by Matrix:Vendor-Echo Corporation. The "discontinued" of course refers to the sound card, not to the driver.
I corrected my mistake, Template:Discontinued is now unused. Delete?
