The Magic Trackpad will work on your Mac computer while running bootcamp, and if you have all of the recommended software updates i.e. OS X 6.4 and the trackpad 1.0 update, you can take advantage of all the functionality and gestures of this wonderful device. As for functioning on a PC, apple has released drivers that will allow the trackpad to work with basic functionality or for it to work simular to a laptop PC trackpad running windows. But to take advantage of all this device has to offer it would be best if used on a Mac running OX 6.4 or later.

Yes, it will work in Windows using the Apple drivers, but much of the functionality (gestures) is not present in Windows. Whether this is a software issue (i.e. Windows does not support gestures) or a limitation of the drivers is unclear. In Windows, you can expect single-click, two-finger right-click, and dragging, but that's about it.

Please see my other response concerning PC compatibilty.
Simply put - yes, with the correct Apple drivers.
Hope this helps.
