SB Platnium 5.1 vs. Game Theatre XP

I'm about to buy one of these cards, 2 questions:
1- Which is better under Win 2K?
2- Which is better under Linux?

I know someone who works for an electronics store so I can get either card for $130. Right now I am leaning towards the SB Plat 5.1 due to the software bundle.

-Thanks


Behold the POWER of common sense!!!

Software can be found anywhere- if you want a good card than get a good card- so that being said the game theater XP is awsome under 2000. Never tried it under Linux though.
