IIRC, the 'driver' portion, when I looked on Windows, was the actual DLL used 
for hardware (some nv*.dll for nVidia). For the second, I have the 
description set to a duplicate of what glString(GL_RENDERER); returns, in my 
personal tree. Some people aren't keen on that change though because of the 
concern that some apps may make inappropriate assumptions based on the 
description string.
