Please answer this question,do (native mode applications)==(protected mode applications)==(device drivers)?
If not,what's the difference?

Native apps are NT apps. Protected mode apps are every app which run in protected mode (win32 app, native, dos apps under extender). Device drivers are a special type of native apps, but they are not apps, they are drivers Smile

Device drivers run ring-0, native applications run ring-3. That also means they use a different API set (kernel api vs. native api).
