Microsoft vowed that its Touch Mouse would get Windows 8 support in time for the software's big release day, and it's being very true to its word by posting the relevant update with less than a week to go.

Will the Touch Mouse update trick you into thinking you have a Surface? No, but it's certainly much easier on the wallet.
