[PD] HID for PD on windows?

Well, as I understand it the HID-object is at present only working on Linux 
and OSX due til difficulties in the windows API, but there is work being 
done on making the HID available for Windows users as well, there's even 
been some talk about this maybe being available in July 2007 which is very 
interesting indeed. Especially since it will also open up for easy access to 
the wii-controller.

For now though the joystick-object will have to do - I wonder if it can see 
my wii-controller as well...


ps - check the attachment for the joystick-object that I'm having success 
with :)
