    Hi, I have been a long time macbook pro user and I finally got around to installing bootcamp to run some windows software for school. I'm sure that many of you have noticed how the acceleration path for the mouse tracking on OSX feel "different" than Windows and my problem is that I prefer the OSX method of tracking and can't stand the fidgety nature of windows tracking (especially while using the new buttonless trackpads which work great on OSX but fail miserably on windows). I did a search on google and found that there are many ways to get the OSX tracking to "feel" like windows using software like USBOverdrive but I couldn't find any solutions for my problem which involves the opposite, getting windows tracking to feel like OSX. Anyways it would be a great help if someone knows of some windows software to make this happen.

    Apologies for replying without a solution. I feel exactly the same way as you man, the Windows curve feels nervous and as you say 'fidgety'.

    I put my hand up as another looking for a solution for this. I wish to have the Mac OS X mouse/trackpad acceleration curve in Windows.

    Perhaps some metrics are needed of the OS X curve in order to manipulate some registry entry in order to simulate OS X curve in Windows.

    Edit: I just found this 'Trackpad++' which actually works. Will take a few mins to get used to it again but feels much more like OS X
