No, Neil and I had meetings at Namm with UA about this and why they are not supporting Windows at this point and why it was working for some. What it comes down to is lack of a unified Windows driver. This creates a problem for hardware devs in the same way it took a couple years for Microsoft to get a unified FireWire driver together and allow more development. There are work arounds and what devs are doing to support TB on Windows but it will keep development at a minimum.

And yes it's Intel only and only 4th gen processors (Haswell) and newer.
