I don’t usually find myself paying much attention to Microsoft’s “previews of coming attractions”, or even checking them out when I see a link. However, when looking at the latest WServerNews references to Windows 7 I had to check it out – and I’m glad I did.
While the article presented some interesting comments on Windows 7, it also provided a link to a WndowsVista blog entry where a short demo of the developing Microsoft multi-touch screen technology can be viewed. This demo had my mind swirling once again at how this technology might be used in the business environments where I work — my mind was running wild with ideas of how I might use it.
I wonder just how long it will be before such technology will find its way into common usage – maybe 5 years?
