Winmodem taps some of the CPU's processing power for its own use. Therefore, it requires loading its device driver to work, and will NOT work without it. Usually such device drivers are for Windows only, thus the term Winmodem.

Regular faxmodem will work with any program that sends command to the COM port, without caring what operating system or device driver(s) loaded.
