There is no possible way to get out of the fact that, at launch, the 8500 drivers were complete pieces of crap. They crashed most people's systems, and for the ones they worked on there were many features that didn't work.

Now today the 8500 drivers are very smooth and have most of the bugs worked out. I think the first few weeks will tell if R300 will be destined to sit on the back-burner because of drivers, or hold the crown at least until NV30 arrives.
