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.
