WiFi is actually pretty good example. We used to have bunch of crappy WiFi drivers but they were mostly abandoned and replaced.
As for videodrivers... well, the vendors decided that they absolutely, positively need to produce crap - and that's why videodrivers are crappiest drivers on all platform. I think open-source drivers eventually will fix the problem but this process is slow-going because most vendors are not just indifferent - they actively hurt these efforts.
