OSNews, Generic OSes On December 28th, 2005 - a day which will live in anonymity - OSNews published an editorial of mine urging hobby and research operating system developers to implement Project UDI, because otherwise we (the small/ non-mainstream/ hobby/research OS community) would always wind up stuck with mutually incompatible sets of drivers for doing the same exact things. I also proclaimed that I would implement UDI for my own operating system kernel. Bad decision.

The Java driver infrastructure provides a set of abstract classes and interfaces that the driver developer needs to extend/implement; so, the infrastructure is very tied to the underlying OS, but the classes and interfaces provided not.
