I don't think so. Those drivers would be outdated soon. I think they
provide fancy "downloaders/installers" that seduces the customers to
register their devices althought that's not needed (and hardly any
Windows user needs the 6478th EQ or compressor). It's probably a
marketing department's "brilliant" idea.

No-one needs installers for Windows systems. The operating system
provides everything. It's always about getting data and control users.

But I think this is no jack topic but more an ALSA topic.
