Default Windows 7 will have multi-touch (Surface-like) Apps - Due late 09

Windows 7 at All Things Digital

From the article:

Quote:
According to demos, Windows 7's multitouch software can enable desktop and laptop PC users to use their fingers to draw pictures on-screen, zoom in and out of photos, zip quickly through slideshows, search and skim maps, and even play an on-screen piano. The multitouch features will be available via Windows 7, as well as on third-party software.
They have a video of it and it looks impressive. They even mention up to 10 simultaneous touches can be tracked in some programs. Oh an Steve Ballmer says it will be due in Late 2009.
