Well, the driver is now 32 bit and 16 bit support would be very difficult to add and
would degrade the driver's performance and supportability, as I already stated. I
think it would be moving backwards for this development effort.
We haven't heard any complaints yet about the lack of 16 bit support. Why dont we
just keep going in a forward direction and see what happens. It seems to work for
Bill Gates. He's no friend of mine, but he sure knows how to get software to
