          Note: Intel(R) Chipset Device Software uses an unusual date
          for the devices it is targeting. The date 07/18/1968 is
          symbolic – Intel was founded that day. The reason this
          date is used is to lower the rank of Intel(R) Chipset Device
          Software.
          This is necessary because it’s a supporting utility that
          should not overwrite any other drivers. Updating Intel(R)
          Chipset Device Software is not needed – do not worry if you
          don’t have the latest version.

          There are a lot of search hits where this has been discussed but it seems that the info originates from the driver’s readme : https://downloadmirror.intel.com/29685/eng/readme.txt

        I thought so as well, but will wait some more.

        In 1968 I was writing banking programs in machine code to run on a room sized NCR 315 mainframe computer.
