Anyone try boot camp yet?

Would be particularly interested in whether the new drivers for the trackpad support tapping the touchpad to generate a click in windows.

Hope that I don't get too many flames for wanting to have windows on a mac. I can guess what people on this board think of windows. I just have some legacy apps that must run. I'm a die hard tapper so I've avoided getting a MBP because the the tap to click has not yet worked.

Trackpad support in Windows will be the same as you can get with the MBP/MB as it is the Air. The trackpads are perfectly capable of tapping, but the drivers need to be updated to support it.

There is no update that anyone here can download.

I was merely mention it is possible, but there would need to be a new update made available to enable it.

:-( i misunderstood. and hoped that you had found a way. it is very anoying nto to be able to tap when you know that it just need a driver that apple does yet not provide. lets hope... thanks anyway

By the way, the iSight driver is not updated in bootcamp for the MBA.
