    Unless, of course, Michael was running an unpatched version of windows straight from the DVD. Which now that i think of it, he does for linux systems.
    Seen plenty of "UP TO DATE XYZ" where XYZ was linux distro. Or stock distro BUT with kernel/mesa/drm from git repos. That is up-to-date as one can get..

      I'm mostly thinking of Fedora tests, where Michael has tested out of the box Fedora even when an updated system would bring in new versions of X, Mesa, kernel, etc.

      That's in cross-distro tests, comparing Fedora, to Ubuntu, to etc... - when he's specifically checking mesa updates, obviously that brings in the new versions directly.

      As for the windows updates - you're correct about wddm 1.2 being win8 exclusive. MS backported some of the new win8 api into win7 with the IE10 prerequisite system update, but that didn't include wddm 1.2. However, that wouldn't be unprecedented - they did backport 1.1 from windows 7 into Vista. I believe that's what i was thinking of.
