In the article "and PC makers haven’t had enough time to work out kinks with so-called drivers, which connect software to such hardware as printers"

LOL...."so-called" drivers? Is that for a so-called operating system? Driver seems like the right term - not sure why Cherry says so-called.
Just amused at the quote - as if drivers is new to the computer industry or consumer lexicon. Yes, driver changes yet again means potential for Vista like problems at rollout....consumers (and even MS's own Executives) have little tolerance for their printer etc drivers not working out of the starting gate.
