The logo Requirement`s state these things, To have a Logo for Vista their driver must be compatible with 32bit and 64bit Vista/Windows 7 and must be displayed on the Box, If that company violates these rules they can be sued and fined by Microsoft for illegal use of their logo...So go report them

Jeremy, you just completely disregarded my last reply and Plagiarizing reply`s from wikipedia and other websites is pathetic and just shows how little you know about Operating Systems in general, Give me a reason why I shouldn't lock this thread since your acting like a Troll?
As I asked in my last reply, Can you find one driver for Windows 98 that works on XP?
Win98 was a very popular OS at its time and XP was a popular OS, Yet not one driver for Win98 works on XP...(XP turned 10 years old this year, doesnt support HDMI, USB3. SLI or other new technology)
Same thing...Not one XP driver works on Vista because new technology requires a new driver framework to support that new technology and intern requires a new driver for the new framework supporting that new technology, Linux did the same thing when they switched to the 2.6 kernel and forced everyone to write new drivers(Three years ago) and Apple did the same thing with OSX 10.5 requiring new drivers for everything(Three Years ago)...
Every newly released operating system needs a new driver because each manufacturer (Linux, Apple, Windows) upgrades their driver framework to support new technology and that means a new driver, The responsibility of driver support is the maker/manufacturer of that technology and this will never change. EVER!
If you buy a product that has the Windows Vista logo and doesnt work with Vista 32bit or 64bit, you report them so they can be sued and you get your money back...That however is a completly differrent subject from the one you where originally discussing.
