What i was trying to impress on you is that you are ONE person that paid
$30.00+ or - and there are BILLIONS of Windows users that just might pay
#30.00+ or -. So if it was your company trying to sell Webcams and your
company paying for drivers development where would YOU spend the money? On
ONE person who bought ONE Webcam, okay say one hundred people or one
thousand people?, or on the rest of the world that might buy your Webcam.
Not really much of a decision to make here. Is it?

I'm sorry that you are so upset about this. I think I would have spent more
time looking before I bought and then either accepted the results or tried
to fix the problem. Bitching (sorry folks) don't fix nothin'.
