So the Windows Hardware team has released its version of the Xbox 360 controller, which actually just happens to be a normal wired 360 controller with a Windows XP installation disc in different packaging. I managed to get my hands on one to give it a once over, and took a bunch of images of the controller along with a few screen captures of the setup process.
