Software can be modified, hardware can't. It's easier to sell and buy 
physical goods (like food), but it's easier to share ideas, so harware 
companies consider their drivers as being part of their hardware. They are 
so wrong... One day, we will build our own hardware based on shared ideas 
and software.
