Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we present a device-driver-based computer that realizes the reduction of mode (domain or vertical) switching overheads between user and kernel mode with innovative attributes, including shared keyboards and mice, access-controlled files, and timed files. Experimented results show that old personal computers can revive again with the proposed Driverware technology. The proposed Driverware can improve the CPU resource utilization by three times.
