Hello all,

I am a bit confused about the use of backend drivers by guest os'es.

A guest os must modify/port it's drivers so that they can communicate with the backend drivers? Or a guest os stops using its own native drivers and just communicates with the backend drivers through newly implemented frontend drivers?

I hope you can clear that up for me.
