Tonight, at this year's D:All Things Digital conference, Julie Larson-Green showed Walt Mossberg how a few of the multi-touch innovations first previewed in Surface will ultimately enhance the next version of Windows. Please note, the applications you will see are for demonstration purposes only...but it's all Windows 7 underneath.

:bulletgreen: Watch The Video

Beautiful...
But again, you'll need hi-end hardware to run all these properly, or you know what people will end up doing...yeah, Windows 7 Bashing!

yaa but i really dont think hardware will be such a MAIN issue on 7 since most of the people r running dual core duo's and about 1 gb ram..This was microsoft main concern to move the people up in hardware spec..for current/future OS..but i am sure we will need to update a little bit..which make sense..

from this video my main concern would be the screen..this time we would have to buy them...

Screen, or Touch-sensitive screen also comes under hardware, doesn't it? Without it, there's no use of Touch or Multi-touch.

That's pretty nice, but like it's been stated before. The questions of hardware come in play. People that spend a couple of hundred bucks just to run Vista are gonna have to pay a couple of hundred bucks to get all the sweet features of Windows 7. I think its pretty much crap, whatever happened to just updating an OS and not your entire rig not only do you spend hundreds on hardware you have to spend hundreds on the OS that has these features(that is if microsoft decides to go a la Vista once again). But the touch is very nice I liked the video and I myself as a Photoshop user would like to see what Adobe does to incorperate touch features.

You don't have to imagine that hard, since these kinds of devices already exist in today's market.
This very demo was done on a Dell Latitude XT (which has a digitizer supporting multitouch), the same model that is shipping today.
Things will only get better, supposedly.

I'm not interested in a tablet PC so all these features are useless to me.
