* Windows drivers are built and tested using Windows 7. Validation testing on Windows 8 and 10 is done periodically but not on every new package. Vista, Server 2008 and Server 2012 are not specifically tested, but the drivers are compatible to the best of our knowledge.

**Given Microsoft’s end of support for XP and Server 2003, EDT can only provide limited support and testing for these versions.

*** Linux Drivers are built with support from GCC4 up to GCC 10, and tested on the latest 64-bit versions of CentOs (8.2), Debian(10.6), Fedora(33 beta), and Ubuntu (20.10). Additional testing performed on CentOs 7.6-1810 and Ubuntu 18.04 ARM.
