    Is there someone who has compared the bootcamp from Lion with the bootcamp from Mountain Lion? Any differences in speed? Any other observations?

    Thanks.

    "bootcamp" doesn't really work like that, mac os itself has no effect on the windows partition. As gets repeated very often here, boot camp is really a catch all term for a bunch of stuff, the preperation utility in mac os that partitions/downloads the drivers, the efi-csm that emulates bios and allows windows to boot, and the driver set itself that enables hardware features specific to macs in windows.

    Once it gets past the efi-csm, mac os has no influence anymore, regardless of which version running.

    Apple's bootcamp contains the drivers for Windows and some (later) drivers are more efficient than others. At other times errors have been corrected in a new version of the driver.

    As such I am interested to know if drivers have been improved upon.

    Both download the exact same driver set.
