Are X200 tablets going to be officially supported for Win8?

2012-10-15, 20:13 PM

I'm not seeing any love over on the beta drivers page... I've been test driving Win8 for a couple months now, and I LOVE it, but I'm running out of patience dealing with all the little things, like wifi still showing a strong signal, but not letting data pass through when the lid is closed (tablet-mode or just regularly closed), or the bluetooth indicator being on even though bluetooth is off... 

I'm switching back to the driver-supported waters of Windows 7 now... is Development going to only support the X201 and newer tablets, or do I  just have to wait a little longer?

Like with most new technology, the most recent versions of hardware will get the most support initially and it'll trickle down to the older models later.


I'm just now seeing some Win 7 drivers for my older Dells.
