Irridium 9555 and Windows 10

So after spending a boat buck on air time for my Irridium 9555 so that I can send and receive email and GRIBS while off-grid, I find that Irridium has not yet come out with new USB drivers for W10, that it is 'low priority' and that they will get around to it sometime in 2016. Fortunately I have an older netbook running Windows XP so I can use it, but I thought it might be useful to give folks a heads-up that Irridium is dragging their feet on this issue.

Re: Irridium 9555 and Windows 10

Interesting considering the drivers for Windows 7 & 8 would be nearly identical to the ones for 10.

F Irridium anyway, I lost like $20K in stock back in the day when too many of their sats exploded during launch.
