Drivers vs. Systems     Last updated on 2009     11     2, a full moon day

Among computing systems, drivers are essential。 Drivers are compiled in assembly to be interactive between components, modules, operating systems [OSa, OSb, ...], physical/logical devices, and so on。 All computing entities depend on drivers。 *.vdd, virtual display device driver。 *.vpd, virtual printer device driver。 *.vtd, virtual timer device driver。 *.vxd, virtual device driver。 ... 。 In new concept, notice that driver becomes platform independent aka OS independent, more flexible grid than old concept。Also see: Computers
