Having seen some other messages speaking favorably about Captivator,
I visited their message area on CompuServe to see what's up.

I found a lot of mad customers, apparently because Videologic has
sad they won't commit to doing Win 95 drivers for the card (and that
the current Win 3.1 drivers don't work reliably under Win 95).

I suggest people investigate this issue fully before buying the card.
