Really, what killed Adlib was that they were 3 years late to the market for PCM sound, against an existing standard that was already being used and developed for.
This is what I meant. The parts delay didn't help matters any, but I think at that point, they had already lost and might not have known it yet. (Although I suspect they were aware enough to be concerned.) Like I said, they were outmatched in the business department. Neat card, but they were not skilled business people. If Creative hadn't existed, they might have had a chance. Or that vacuum could have been filled by another aggressive competitor.
