Windows 7 multi-touch

The rumor of Windows 7 making an appearance at D6 has actually tuned into
reality. The major discovery, except the slightly enlarged taskbar that we are not
allowed to talk about, is that multi-touch features will be natively built into the OS.

Considering this and keeping in mind that iPhone and Surface already use this technology
I think that we might actually be looking at a small revolution in the field of interaction with
computers.

Touch screens have been around for quite a while, yet with multi-touch (after having the
pleasure to experience the Surface for the first time this week) you will be able to achieve
tasks faster in comparison to “older” interface tools such as keyboards and mice.

Details on the SDK will be released at the PDC (October).
