Sure. I wasn't claiming that some people don't have problems, but
that others do. If you watch the vortex development list, you'll see
what I mean. It's one of those YMMV things.
I worked with a machine that would lock up on a daily basis at 10Mb
with the early 0.46 drivers. It's calmed down with the newest ones,
but it was a big hassle before that. The tulip cards are cheaper and
better supported. I'd go with that, and I have both. Note that I'm
not using them at 100Mbit if it matters.
