Um, it's hard to understand you, so I'm going to guess that the answer depends on the definition of 'driver'.

Edit: but more seriously, I'd say no, based on the way the word 'driver' is used in common usage.

A driver handles the abstraction of hardware to a software construct.

Operating systems handle allocation and management of other more abstract constructs (such as files, sockets, and processes), rather than JUST hardware access, as drivers do.
