I'm not sure what you mean here. Not all PCI modems are "software win-modems". I have a PCI "hardware" modem that works under NetBSD/OpenBSD/Linux.

I'd think you'd prefer this kind of modem because the newer PCI bus should give better data transfer between modem and computer, than would an ISA bus.
