The win9x drivers of the 8500 go up to version 9016, while the win2k/xp drivers stop at 6037! Does this mean that my radeon would run faster/with more features in win9x? Or is the driver designation just different for different os'es?

More then likely it's just the number of revisions the particular drivers have gone through for the specific OS.
