Sata has to have a controller just like IDE. IDE has been out for 10+ years so the drivers have been floating around for a while too, not to mention there are probably only a certian number of controller chips out there.

Sata has been out only a few years and still is only now getting onto the "maintstream" PC makers agenda. So all you have to do is load the driver when Xp asks you to. The same goes for RAID, and SCSI. They all have to have controller support.

Its not a big deal really. Soon IDE will be gone, so embrace the new standard.
