Yes, AMD is rich, they can easily use that 2 people who still wants to use XP with modern hardware.

I don't think it supports direct PCI lane access, you he won't be able to install the TV tuner in there, which defeats the purpose. However, Win7 has drivers for these old TV tuner cards and they work fine with WMC. Even my good old Pinnacle PCTV Stereo does.

It's not about being able to afford it or not. We're talking about windows here and individuals, not companies, if you know what I mean. Some people just don't like it.

This. However, old hardware is a good excuse. I got this x1650 Pro a few days ago and its performance is approx. 30% less under win7/vista compared to XP. Still these old cards still have their XP drivers done, so it doesn't really matter. XP shouldn't be used with new hardware, that's certain.
