It might prove beneficial if you actually took the time to state
exactly why you consider it a "scam".

I found numerous articles describing this device. One such site:

http://www.examiner.com/pc-game-in-national/bigfoot-killer-2100-review-review

In any case, the OP can check out this URL for more precise information:

http://www.bigfootnetworks.com/killer-2100/

I think it is rather clear that this is not in all probability going to
work on a non-windows OS. Nothing surprising there. As Willie Sutton so
prominently stated, "Go where the money is... and go there often." I
wouldn't want to hold my breath waiting for a driver either. In any
case, its your money.
