If the end user has to download and install a driver manually, it may be characterized as being a user-mode device driver. The task of writing drivers thus usually falls to software engineers or computer engineers who work for hardware-development companies. This is because they have better information than most outsiders about the design of their hardware. Moreover, it was traditionally considered in the hardware manufacturer’s interest to guarantee that their clients can use their hardware in an optimum way.
