Exclamation I am NOT giving up on 40.xx drivers for 9x/me yet!

Ok, third thread lucky. Right?

I am NOT prepared to give up on the 40.xx drivers for 9x/me yet, and although all my whining threads keep seeming to get closed I'm gonna keep trying to open new ones in the hope that it can stay civil and on-topic. Can we PLEASE just talk about either how badly we want some 40.xx luvin for 9x/ME or ways to let nVidia know we want 'em? We know there's people out there who think that there are better OSs out there, and that there are people who think the 40.41s are so buggy for XP that we shouldn't even be wanting to try them; let's all consider these moot points to the discussion and not raise them...shall we?


Here's where the last thread left off on a productive note:

"I sent off an e-mail to Carrie Cowan myself just to try and make myself feel a bit more productive. I got her e-mail off of nViida's press relations page where there's a few other e-dress' as well....

If you folks wanna help, why not drop each of them a quick line?

Brian Burke is their desktop PR man, so he seems like fair game....and Derek Perez seems to be the big-cheese of their PR dept so he'd be good too.

Drop 'em a friendly note just asking what the status of their 40.xx win9x/me drivers...nothing nasty. Just a show of interest to let them know we care. "

Now the rules are simple: No spamming, one letter a day, and keep it nice/clean/friendly....but let's start mailing them to let them know we're getting a bit impatient here.

I haven't received any replies myself yet, I plan to mail out my second volley after lunch. (Hey, I'll give them the morning to reply. )

MODS: If'n you're closing threads because we're whining for the 40.xx 9x/me drivers please let me know and I'll quit opening new threads. I'm assuming you're closing the threads 'cause they detereorate into some XP/9x personality clashing.

Talking I'm gonna keep using Win98....

Cause I like it I never have any problems and games run great

I am sure Nvidia will keep making Win98/ME drivers. I just don't see why they would stop. Tons (Maybe Millions) of gamers still use Win98. Heck, Win98 is still being sold at damn near any computer store you go to, and it ain't cheap

Yes, I too am waiting for some Det 40 and Win98 loving

If this were the reason your threads were closed, they would have been stopped a loooong time ago. Keep on whining - it's rather amusing I must say.

Thanks Saturnotaku! As soon as I saw your name next to the thread my eyeballs immedietely snapped to the left looking for a lock on the little envelope image.

BTW-Does anyone know the proper etiquette for annoying a vendor without crossing that fine line into pestering? Is one e-mail a day overkill?

If these people are reading your messages, then it probably is. I would say once every other day until your impatient Indiana butt is satisfied is more than sufficient. Perhaps with more of you 98 dinosaurs writing, it may umm..."motivate" them. Just make doubly certain that our boys and girls at NV don't rush these drivers out the door like they did with the current 40.41 set. Or else we're gonna be vewy mad at vuu.
