    In some cases some devices come with drivers usually distributed exclusively through windows update.

    Well what if I don't want to use windows update, what if I don't agree with the corporatization of the open PC ecosystem being gripped down more and more into Microsofts control.

    Is there any app that can download pretty much any/all drivers off WU? Or maybe some kind of mirror that already has the packs hosted? I don't care if it's 20-30 GB, I have enough archiving space.
