While what you say is probably true, Chipp, none of that obviates
Sivikatirswami's main issue that there are so many permutations and
combinations of devices and drivers for Windows that debugging or supporting
software designed to deal with rich media on that platform is iffy. I have a
good friend who's an audio guru and who does a lot of consultling to net
radio outlets and the like and he tells me that to this day Windows remains
an iffy platform for the reliable deployment of rich media applications that
dare stray outside the bounds of Microsoft's own software base.

Just FWIW.
