So, I'm trying the preview of windows 8 and it seems to have done a pretty good job of installing drivers automatically for everything (at least it all works). Other than the touchpad.

But I'm wondering about graphics card drivers. I'm on a slightly old dell laptop, and as you may know, getting updates on mobile graphics drivers can be very tricky... it's usually down to the manufacturer, and most don't bother for long.

So windows seems to have automatically installed some AMD drivers (WDMI? not sure, other pc) that work fine on the desktop and when I tried out Trine. Are these drivers hobbled in some way? Given the hassle of trying to get updated drivers on an old mobile card, are these better or worse than the old drivers that i'm using on vista?

Any thoughts?
