"Creative Labs has sent word that they have decided to embrace the open source philosophy for their Sound Blaster Live drivers. They have decided to branch their code tree for the SB-Live into 2 dedicated sets of drivers. One set will be for Linux / Unix and be opensource, while the other will be for Windows, BeOS, Linux, and Mac (binaries only). They hope that by doing this they will be serving their users best."

"Jacob Hawley, Director of Custom Engineering, sends word that they are planning to get their CVS / Bugzilla server up by early next week, and would like to take this opportunity to ask the Linux community to help them make the opensource driver better. Creative Labs plan to maintain this effort through Bugzilla to help track bugs, post status reports and to post requests for work."
