Very true, few Windows drivers support promiscuous mode.

The Firesheep developers used OS X as their primary development target,
where it works like a champ with little end-user difficulty. Windows
users aren't so fortunate, though if someone wanted to spend some time
it would be possible to use the NDIS 6.0 monitor mode support with
Firesheep with all Windows native-wifi drivers.
