Vista Aero Glass - WDDM drivers for Intel 915GM chipset (e.g. nc6220)

Although the Intel 915GM chipset (which is part of the nc6220) provides all hardware features that Vista requires for Aero Glass user interface effects, Aero Glass is currently not supported (since Beta 2). Earlier notes from Microsoft said that DirectX 9 support is required to get Vista Aero Glass UI so that was the reason why I decided for the HP nc6220.

Now Intel seems to be unwilling to provide the required WDDM driver for the 915gm chipset in order to increase sales for the newer 945gm chipsets.

My hope is that either HP or perhaps any other party provide a WDDM driver for the 915gm or especially for HP notebooks that contain this chipset. If anyone heard or hears from it, please post information here!
