You are talking about commercial drivers, I'm talking about free software.
You're right, 'cos I didn't mention this before, but, for users like me,
from Brazil, it's almost impossible to buy foreign softwares (the software
must be VERY good to compensate all the troubles that we have to make such
transations).
