Interview with Daniel_K - creator of modded Creative drivers

Posted on Thursday, April 03 2008 @ 01:22:29 CEST by

CustomPC had an interview with Daniel Kawakami, the creator of the modded Creative drivers that caused quite a stir this week.
Creative landed itself in a bit of a PR nightmare when it recently tried to get heavy-handed on driver modder Daniel Kawakami, with thousands of people signing a petition to Creative, and many more expressing negative feelings towards the company. Whether driver modding is right or wrong is a hot topic, and Daniel Kawakami has now chosen to give his side of the story.

‘I'm NOT a cracker [or] a hacker,’ Kawakami told Custom PC, ‘just an enthusiast modder with basic assembly knowledge.’ As he points out, ‘modding is a common practice among enthusiasts, and I don't recall some company threatening a modder.’ Kawakami gives the notable exception of mods that allow an exclusive feature to be enabled on a competitor’s product, such as enabling SLI on a non-SLI chipset. He also points out that other mods, such as ‘the GeForce to Quadro mod,’ have also been published on review sites.
